Summer Bugs

by Buster Bruce July. 13, 2019 135 views

Sometimes creepy, sometimes beautiful, sometimes nasty- summer bugs are always a good photo catch. I took these in my back yard in the span of 10 mins. And, yes I got stung by a yellow jacket even though I was not even trying to photograph him! Ouch- but nothing that a good activated charcoal poultice wont cure!

Lovely set! Great detail on the dragonfly - their faces are so interesting. Sorry to hear about your bee sting though!

Trinicia- thanks. I didnt mention those bugs I missed. So many flew, jumped, or crawled away so fast- luck

#3 I do not know about how they are in Texas this year but down here in SC they are super loud almost drowing out the frogs which is saying alot .Sweet series of shots.

Thanks Russell. They are loud here as well but they don't dominate as we lie on the border of prairie and jungle! Plus we have those adorable 3 inch cicada killer hornets that keep em check 😊
