A weekly photo linkup
Superb photos. Love the diversity in nature but I'm glad most of them aren't in my backyard. I'm very skittish around bees, hornets and spiders.
Wonderful pictures !!! How nice to observe nature up close !!Greetings
Even if I don't like most of those creatures with 6 or more (*aargh*) legs, they look fantastic in closeup views. Your pictures are really great!Birgit from Austria
What great shots!You inspired me to write a wordless post at once.I'll be back to add my link!Greetings, Frauke
Awesome insect captures, great macro shots. I love the dragonfly. Thank you Sue for hosting. Have a happy week ahead!
Such amazing detail... such creepy detail!!!! :) Nice pictures. :)
Gorgeous macros!I decided to join in with my ladybird photos, even though they are not as impressive as yours. :)Have a lovely week!
These are amazing shots! Gorgeous critters!
Amazing photos! x
Wow! Great macros!
Wow you captured great macros of the insets. Well done.
Love the detail in your photos! Thanks so much for the link party!
Wow...these are lovely, Sue!
Great macro collection! My favorite is the katydid.Have a nice week, thanks for hosting
an interesting variety of insects and wonderful images they are.
Thank you for hosting.... Fantastic captures!
Great photos. Thanks for hosting.
Fabulous insect pictures! I'm guessing you shot these with a macro - really good work.
These are great captures.It is really interesting to see different types of insects here.Interestingly these all insects have their own beautiful features.
eewww.....these close ups are too close up for me. Great pics though. Have a fabulous week
Great job, as always! Feeling itchy now that I've seen all those bugs! Teresa from NanaHood.com
Those are some super pics. Love them. Wow. Really cool.
Those are great pictures, perfect focus. Your #6 bug looks like a leaf footed bug nymph. A bad guy.
Nice and cool shots!Britta
Very beautiful photos. Love the extreme close-ups.
Oh wow! Impressive photos. Incredible that you got these. I tried to photograph some insects this weekend and failed miserably. I am most attracted by the eyes. They are so shiny.
Hi Sue,Congrats on your amazing images. Otherworldly indeed! The closeups are shimmering bright. OMG,the dragonfly and its shadow is marvelous. You've got the expertise. Thanks!
I wish I had your talent for photography. Today we say dozens of beautiful, purple dragon-fly like insects at the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska. I didn't even try to get a photo but I wish I had been able to.
These are such amazing captures!!
Great shots!! I wish I could manage this but they are too fast for me :) I love the dragonfly... so amazing.
Great shots, especially the dragonfly.
Wonderful pictures, I love these macros of insects, great !!
Amazing close up shots Have a bugtastic day :-)
Wow. These are amazing pictures.
Amazing shots! So clear. What lens did you use here?
So glad you enjoyed them!I used a Canon 6 D camera with a 100 mm f/2.8L IS USM lens.
Great close ups X
Hi! Nice captures. Your photos are very impressive. Thanks for sharing.
Fantastic and interesting. Especially the dragonfly and the red eyes of the cicada.
Very nice set of macro images. I have never really tried macro photography, but I do find it fascinating. The level of detail achieved is remarkable. Nice work.
Those are truly incredible macro shots you captured. What lens did you use?
I used a Canon 6D with 100 mm f/2.8L IS USM lens. I really enjoy taking insect photos!Glad you enjoyed the photos!
Fantastic shots Sue!!!
So many...various insects, amazing little creatures captured in pics!! Have a sunny summer!
Wow Sue, amazing shots!!
Your images are out of this world! The last one is my favorite, because of the design on the back:) Thanks for visiting me yesterday:)
Wow! I can learn a lot from these detailed photos of insects. Beautifully captured!
wow great detail!
Excellent series of close ups.
Wow! Excellent closeups of the bugs. That one wasp looking thing is scary, though!
The last bug has stunning pattern
Fantastic macros of these insects, Sue! It's amazing how beautiful they are up close.
Beautiful bug shots. That reminds me I have to see if my bee shots turned out or not, but you've set the bar high for a good BIF (bee in flight ;p)
Excellent close up! I doubt my camera can take such details!
What great images, I'm going to have to show my children so they can be inspired too!
These are beautiful Su, they look like dragons or some other mystical beast when you get up so close to them. Beautiful bugs!
Hi Y'all!Love the buggy closeups.Y'all come on by,Hawk aka BrownDoghttp://www.browndogcbr.net
These macros are stunning, love them! I know how hard it' is to get good photos of these little bugs before they fly away :)
Incredible shots! Wow!
I love the bee on the yellow flower!Thanks for joining OMHG Wordless Wednesday...have a great week!Shelliewww.thefabjourney.co
Thank-you for hosting AND visiting my blog each time AND most of all, leaving a comment! You are a great hostess!
Creepy but very cool!
Oh wow, you got some stunning shots!! :)
gorgeous!trish - tales from trish
Look at those insects..They look wonderful in your photos. Love it...and the colors...niceee :)
I was leaving a comment this morning and got interrupted. I love your macros of all these insects. They look so interesting close up--love the cicada's red eyes!PS: Thankfully we did not see any bears in the park we walked in! I believe it would be too busy a place for bears to stay in during the day, but I would not be surprised if they came by at night to look for food in the picnic areas!
Thank you very much!
I looooooooove all of these! Insects are so cool. :D Awesome post!
Fantastic...such vibrant colors♪
What an amazing series of insects. The moth with folded wings on the daisy is gorgeous!
Great macro shots! You got some great ones here. I haven't been quite so lucky since getting my macro lens last summer. I really hoped this spring would provide an opportunity to use it, but my timing was off. Oh well...maybe I will have good luck finding the right instance to use it heavily. Have a fototastic week!My recent post...Gnarled Tree #WW
