I always preach at people not to kill tomato worms. I love the hummingbird moths and that's the only way to get them. :D

The bug shots are neat to see. I have my macro lens ready and waiting for anything interesting around our house & yard. Actually I saw the one of the prettiest yellow spiders on my purple African daisies. I have to go find her again. The macro world is a whole other interesting realm.

So I am wondering what you did to it :200: [icon_lol2.gif]


Examined it, petted it, and took it's photo.....while being topless? Maybe? That method works well for getting your tomatoes to ripen more quickly. ........Just embarrass them.

Not the greatest shot, I only had a second or two to take it and all I had was my phone. It's a mud dauber drinking from our little table top fountain. They tend to come in single file for refreshment on hot days. They don't bother us so we don't bother them.

I try to not kill bugs of any kind. I take spiders outside. I do profess to disliking flies and wasps though because both creatures tend to be pains in the arse when you're trying to enjoy a nice evening on the deck. If they weren't so stupid, I'd leave them alone.

Although not a bug, believe it or not this is an actual 1 to 1 Macro, shot by me on film.

Then developed and printed in my darkroom (then a cell phone imagine of the print)
Any idea how I can honestly call it a macro?

Queen K probably knows the answer to this.

We wouldn't have that problem if only Noah had swatted one on the Ark
