As it is Spring in Melbourne Australia, I have been finding many insects out within the flowers. This has certainly sparked my interest in Macro photography.
This bee was very actively seeking pollen!
I was photographing this flower when I spotted the camouflaged insect within!
I like the contrast between the dark fly and the yellow flower.
The big eyes on this little spider intrigued me, I’m not normally a spider fan!
I have a feeling there will be more macro insect photos appearing in the future, quite a lot of fun!
Bye for now, Andrew 🙂
Thank you 🙂
You are very welcome. I love doing bug macros, too!! You are right…great fun.
Fantastic photos. Did you use a macro lens?
Thanks Leanne. I have a Sony RX100 which has a fixed lens which can go to f1.8.
These really appeal to me. As you know, I prefer shots where the insect has space. I am intrigued by the pink cricket. We have one that looks almost exactly the same, but it only comes in green.
Thank you! Yes I like to see the insect in its environment too. First time I have ever seen a pink cricket. I wondered if it had changed colour to match the flower, not sure…
Good eye Andrew. You bring us close enough to savor the beauty. Everything has its own version of gorgeous if we get in close and quiet. Thanks for letting us in. Dan
Thanks Dan, yes I was amazed at how cute the spider was. I usually try and keep my distance from spiders haha.
