little moth…

on the backdoor window measured less than an inch wide. It cooperated while I putzed about with the macro against the glass.

Cricket on a Rose….

Great Green Bush Cricket

This visitor, a Great Green Bush Cricket, on a rose in the front yard was patient as I maneuvered the lens within its long antennae range. Going hand held and a breeze eliminated all but a few images.

Ring Full of Midges

The midge, buzzer, gnat, chironomid fly pattern represents the seemingly ever present small insect that hatches in all manner of waters almost year ’round. Larva, pupa or adult patterns are tiny morsels that trout find available when almost nothing else is ‘coming off’ (emerging/hatching) the waters in the Winter and part of the mix the rest of the year. Like popcorn in the food chain of life.

Dragon Fly

I watch for the visit from the Dragon Fly

that emerges into the world from below. They visit, they land atop my rod.

And, as if to send me positive energy, they stay longer than a skittish, common bug, inspiring me,

then bid me goodbye. Soon I see them coupled, in lusty flight, gliding by in the throes of bug love.
