Doesn't much matter (unless you count ego) because Misty Dawn over at My Dogs Keep Me Sane will set me straight. Good gawd, the woman even has a life list of bugs she hopes to someday photograph. Me? I just shoot pretty things.
Why yes, I am shallow.
At least about bugs.
(Misty, I spent about 3 hours trying to identify these, so please tell me I got at least one right.)
Crane Fly (species: Tipula oropezoides)
Orange Bluet Damselfly (species: Enallagma signatum)
Female White-Faced Meadowhawk Dragonfly (species: Sympetrum obtrusum)
Male White-Faced Meadowhawk Dragonfly (species: Sympetrum obtrusum)
My friend, Peg, asked how I get these bastids to pose for photographs. I approach this in a very Zen-like manner. I pretend I'm a tree. I become one with my roots, sway gently with the breezes, and never ever breathe.
