Default Few more closeups from July 29

These were taken with FZ35+LC55.

#1 Tiny cucumber beetle (I think I added the Raynox 250 on top of LC55 for this shot. He was about a grain of rice).



#2 Gulf fritillary upclose




#3 Blue dasher dragonfly




#4 I thought this was a honeybee, but after looking in my field guide I found out it is called a "faithful leafcutting bee"!




#5 Tiny pug moth caterpillar, it was like a piece of thread.....

All are really neat! I like #2 the best. Your perspective, getting that butterfly's tongue, is great!
