Great pics as usual, you all. Love the bathing tick, stoney, and the reflections from the moth staredown. Great catches.

Here's another ringflash shot to nudge you even further. People always ask "What is that?" I'll leave it up to you all figure it out. A Guessing Game offshot so to speak.



And here's a couple favorite macro's of mine that don't have bugs in 'em.

Mini buds


"Three Apples and a Stem" (i need to start working on borders...)


EDIT: experimenting w/borders. C&C please?

Wow, a White-letter Hairstreak Satyrium w-album. Rather rare in the UK, and hard to spot as they spend most of their time at the tops of trees. I can only dream of getting a photo like that!

Good stuff, Silver. One of the benefits of laptops is easy monitor reorientation, and I say flip it!

Wasn't feeling so good today.. almost went back to sleep instead of going out shooting..but then thought better of it, the fresh air was probably good anyway :-)

#2 Startup your engines


#3 These are a bit difficult, as soon as they land they put their wings together.. its not the best but ill keep trying when I see these insects.


#4 Soldier beetle with a view


#5 Soldier beetle with a view second edition.
