I really don't know here to start ! Great butterfly, beetle, and dragonfly shots in particular ! Especially the dragon macro & 'heart' shots !

Great series Mole,

we've got may/junebugs (other brand but the same setup) here to. Only the weather was been so lousy (then) that I didn't find any.
The color of yours seems a bit more than our versions.

Again great series

All are amazing, but the red bug really seems to stand out for me.
Take care,

i miss roan mountain... i love the gray's lily with the spider inside it! i think i like the second "habitat" shot the best, but i keep going back and forth between the first and second ones. the first one has better lighting, i think, but i like the second one better compositionally. the flower lines up just right with the mountain behind it, drawing your eye directly to the flower and such, where as with the first one, it's not bad, but to mee the line of the mountain seems awkwardly positioned, when compared to the second one. i like the milkweed beetle, he seems ready to jump!! or, he's contemplating deep things... the junebugs make me laugh! they look too big for those little flowers!! i especially like the second one with her little feet hanging in mid air, so you know she's (he?) clinging with just front feet. yellow and brown butterfly on button bush is beautiful! i <3 the heart dragonflies (i made some of my friends look at it, and they all liked it too. although, they thought the rest of your pictures were "wow! so pretty! he takes really good pictures!"

Quite the series! Roan Mountain looks like a magical place, and the dragonfly's eye is incredible.

Hearts, but no flowers . . . .

Sorry - I couldn't resist - great series, as usual
