Excellent photo's. We've already had a few nights where it's gone below freezing up here and I've noticed I'm not seeing too many bugs around.

As always great color, sharpness and composition Mole, I love your choice of subjects, one of these days I will have to ask about your pp procedures.

Wonderful photography yet again. Too many superlatives to identify just one or two shots.

I would like to know however, how you know grasshoppers, butterflies etc. are 'tasty'

NMR - Yes, those are a species of Damselfly called Familiar Bluets. Will post you a crop of just his & her faces in a moment...

Ronny - Thanks!

Lou - 1st and 2nd Little Yellow were taken with an old Tamron Adaptall and 2X TC. #3 taken with DA 70 and Asahi Pentax close-up filter.

Ned - Thanks for your very kind and specific comments!

Les - Frost sure does thin their numbers - seeing far fewer "little critters" up in the high country lately.

D/D - They sure are photogenic little 'flies. Glad you enjoyed them!

Hans - Thanks! As for PP, I use PSE version 6 and/or Gimp for minor edits. Lately have been shooting Raw plus Jpeg. If Jpg looks good, don't need to mess with raw, but raw is nice to have if exposure was problematic. Usually do just minor cropping for compositional purposes, and use Noiseware (photoshop plug in) if noise is a problem.

Rodney - Those crab spiders are amazing - especially their ability to change color somewhat according to the flower color. But I found one recently (will post when have time) on a very purple Aster, and spider was white! I guess purple is outside their repertoire...

Kevin - You are too kind!
PS - Some of my friends in other Law Enforcement occupations call Park Ranger "bug eaters!"
