Going Way Back

I'm trying to get back into the groove of things after having been gone awhile, so I decided to go way back. Back to where I started my blog archive anyway. These images were taken a couple of summers ago in Hyalite Canyon. I happened upon a meadow teeming with life.  These are just a few of the insects I saw that day.

What is goin' on in that last one?? Is the fly caught in a water droplet? Cool!

All fine shots but that fly and water drop look surreal.

Jill - That fly is indeed stuck on that water droplet. The tip of his wing got soaked. It is pretty cool. Wish I had a bit sharper image of it.

Hilary - Thank you for the kind comment. The fly shot is a bit surreal. It's always surreal to me when I find an insect trapped. It amazes me what they can become stuck on. I once found a wasp stuck on a blade of grass. I think her wing had slipped into the interlocking seeds. So I dipped the blade of grass and she slid off. I've lost track with how many stuck insects I've found in tree sap. That's kind of cool although I feel bad for them because they're always encased which means they've passed on. In all the years I've been doing this, I've definitely learned that spider webs aren't the only thing the wee ones have to look out for!

Great macro shots...I have trouble keeping close shots in focus, but am working on it. Glad you're back!

Thank you for the lovely comment Monica. I am trying to get back into my creative groove. I need to stick with it even when life gets hectic.

Thank you for the lovely comment Unknown Mami. I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I photographed that poor fly. I'm hoping he was able to escape the water droplet.
