Love the spider macros. What lens are you using? Like all your other shots as well. Waterfalls are so picturesque.

Lovely shots as always Mole. I especially like your first photo -- the dessicated brown leaf is in a perfect compositional spot. Was it there by coincidence, or did you place it there?

Very nice job, Mole!
I really miss getting out and taking nature shots but, my health doesn't allow me out in this heat for very long. So, I really appreciate the shots you share with us.

Life's a breeze on a Goldwing...

Jeannie - Thanks for the kind words and good wishes!

Narcis - So glad you enjoyed these. Used a variety of lenses - the spiders were with a Sigma 105 macro...

MtnMan - Thanks so much! The leaf was there, just as you see it... One of those "lucky accidents."

GW - So sorry to hear about your on-going health problems. Will certainly keep you in my prayers. Maybe it's time to move to a cooler climate, like East Tennessee!!

Kevin - Glad you liked the "little critters!" Last fly is a Bearded Robber Fly, also called a Bee Killer. They're pretty fierce predators of a variety of insects, including bumblebees. We've seen a lot of these out in the sunny meadows for the past few weeks.
