Hi all,

It’s been a while since I uploaded any photos. I’ve still been active on my blog, and have been posting photo and stories. I just haven’t put any up here because they have all been about insects and I have posted quite a number of pictures over the past few months. I don’t want to wear out my welcome...

Anyhow, here are a few photos that have gone up on the blog fairly recently.

I hope everyone had a great summer...
Cheers,
EC

They are fantastic, keep on posting them.

The Dragonfly is focus-stacked, right?

On the Shield bug photo, the background is a bit too saturated/distracting for my taste. I know it is probably natural, but I wonder how it would look like if it was darker or not as limey. :smile: It would perhaps accentuate the colors of the bug better.

Nope, the dragonfly photo isn't stacked...all of these are shot normally using a 35mm macro lens and ring flash

Cheers,
