Bugs!

I have finally accepted that while I do flower photography (and I have some nice ones to share later), I really do mostly photograph bugs. They are so interesting. The shapes and the colors, the patterns of wings, the way the hairs lay, how very different their eyes all are. While my friends and relations are providing me with a rather alarming selection of dead insects for my microscope, I do like to chase the live ones around. Since new camera lenses are on my Christmas list, I am hoping my images next year will make my images this year look dreadfully shabby.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

As of yesterday, a small selection of my flower and bug photography art cards will be available locally, at the Quilted Ladybug in the Moorhead Center Mall. Feel free to stop by and see all the fun things she has in her shop. The clear bags my cards are in are made from plants and compostable. Isn’t it amazing the things humans have invented?

In the mean time, here are a few of my buggy favorites from this summer. Just because I like them.
