Insect Photographs

Recommended Posts

Hi, I thought it might be a good idea if we had a few threads dedicated to certain areas of photography that all members could post in? Such as birds, insects, landscapes etc......

So to start this Net Weather insect thread off, here are a few creepy crawlies from me

Spiders surprise

Its as easy as this Loubz (you flatterer!!) a decent macro lens :doh: Get the 100mm canon macro your thinking about!

Lovely Tortoiseshell Greyowl, I have struggled to get a shot of one of these little beauty's! :D great stuff!

Owww! I feel a bit embarrassed to post this one in such professional company, but here goes - a dragon fly taken last week in Cornwall.

My garden has been full of them this year. Never seen so many before. They rise in clouds from the tubs of marigolds by the back door.

Great one Coast, is that a red darter dragonfly? Good shot to get it resting, they normally zip about!

Couldn't say! I saw it on a piece of slate basking in the sunshine and got as close as I could to get this shot.

It's a common darter, I took some photo of one and stuck it in the photography forum not long ago :doh: Nice pictures though lots of detail, especially like the moth. Good stuff!

Very nice caterpillars Kelly, I managed to get some rather pathetic pictures of one... all I can say is I can't wait to get a decent macro!

That is what I have got Kelly, didn't want to pay out for a decent macro if I didn't like macro photography. I do think they lack clarity and the blue haze you get is a pain, but hey can't complain at the price!

Here's one of mine, not the best shot in the world of Cinnabar Moth caterpillars (with added red soldier beetle).
