I'm a huge fan of macro pictures.
So of course, as I see a few fellow blog friends participating in
Well, I just had to get my brain, computer, & pictures in one place.
So, where is this bug-girl obsessed with up-close photography to start?
A fly on columbine (love that metallic gold).
An immature grasshopper on milkweed - oh the metallic colors in sunlight!

And where there are aphid colonies, the ladybug beetle larvae is not far behind.
Love those beneficial insects!
This entomologist, gardener, conservationist just cannot get enough of these up close pictures.
Stop back again to see what else I'm going to post from the garden.
I've got a post coming up with photos of a Hymenoptera pupa and the clay pieces that I was inspired to make into earrings from it...
