Some Bugs Here

Some Bugs Here

I admit to not even trying to ID insects anymore. It escapes me, and most likely a few of the experts will bail me out…you know who you are.

The other thing with my ‘bug shots’ is never any planning.

Most all are taken with the worst gear for this type of work. Everything I carry is made for distance, long distance.

Because I always need to move away, not close to, a subject the bokeh (background blur) makes up for the lack of good macro gear.

Both photographs here were taken with a Sigma 150-600 lens, at 150.

  1. That first bug is really cool-looking, but I have no idea what it is. As for the dragonfly, the angle makes it a little tough to be sure, but it looks like it might be a Needham’s Skimmer to me, based on the yellowish-gold color of the leading edges of the wings and the orange-red of the body.
