She remembered me...lol. When I approached,she straightened up and gave me this look.....=)
Nice To See You!
Goldenrod makes a nice background for Mantis portraits
Skipper on Smartweed
Banded Argiope quickly wrapping up an unfortunate grasshopper....note the silk shooting from her spinarettes
Wolf spider with spiderlings
Another cooperative Mantis
Shot through the vegetation for a dreamy look
Chewing on an antenna of a Northern Paper Wasp,you can see it's head in her foreleg
Skipper and Drops
A good year for these tiny butterflies
Fiery Skipper(?) about to become a meal for this Banded Argiope
I love nature, as you can tell from my images! I believe when the light is right,all things have an inherent beauty to them,and that is what I try to capture. By no means am I a professional, and I limit my editing to slight adjustments in color and contrast....no HDR for me!
