Day 261 - Project 365 "Unexpected"

by Trinicia Perch September. 18, 2019 88 views

I started the day telling myself this days theme was going to be impossible. I figured I would have to have my camera ready at all times to catch the unexpected. Boy was a wrong.

I was going about my morning walk as I've done the past few days. I was walking the Highline looking for flowers and bugs. As I was switching to my macro lens I spotted the bug in the first image. I thought it would be a good shot to see how close and crisp I can get the image. After a shot or two I was attempting to adjust my prospective. What I saw next through my viewfinder almost had me tripping over myself as I jumped back. The next shot happened only after I had a chance to compose myself.

Talk about unexpected.......

Not as clear as I hoped but it's the next photo that threw me for a loop............

Tis the season for these guys. I came across these guys last year, all huddled together and did not know what they were until someone here told me they are milkweed bugs. I think they are rather cool and you did a very nice job of capturing them unexpectedly. 😊

Once I got of being startled by them, I was quite fascinated.  However I still felt that creepy crawly feeling for most of the morning.
