OK, back to regular programming tonight: images that I captured in the past week. I gave all of them an artistic treatment, added some textures, but the compositions are as found and as shot.
Click on images for larger view. I have absolutely no idea what these little red bugs are. They resemble firebugs but the markings are different. They are sitting on a developing dandelion seedhead.
A fly with what I believe is a grasshopper nymph on a foxglove.
While I was setting up to shoot the snail, this grasshopper shimmied up the stem as tho it wanted to be included in the image. How could I resist!?
