As always, wonderful series beautifully photographed.

There are so many good insect shots but I like the 2nd Grey Hairstreak & the Hummingbird Moth (the IIF one) shots the best. The 2nd shot of a wasp on the Milkweed is brilliant - but just cropped a little too tight perhaps ? What a lovely buck too.

GW - Thanks so much!

Penolta - Thanks for your very kind words. You are so right - milkweed is such a great plant for so many "bugs."

Harriet - Glad you enjoyed these.

Lou - Thank you!

Frogfish - Thanks for the kind & specific comments. Those hairstreaks are tiny, but such lovely delicate & varied patterns.
Will try some other shots of those wasps at other distances...

Wonderful, as usual. You do such good work on these. We saw some dragonflies Sunday at a local state park. But, all I could manage to carry that day was my film camera with the kit lens on it and I discovered it was too much. So, didn't get many shots. Would have been the perfect opportunity to play with my "new" Viv 105.

My second surgery is this coming Monday. I'm hoping to recover from that soon, as I'm itching to get out and photograph things now that this is all sinking in with me. I did go out yesterday to the chapel by the coast with the film camera with b&w film. Haven't developed it yet. Hopefully by Saturday I'll be able to lift my camera better and can get it in color.

Anyway, back to your images. Stunning as usual. You have so many interesting things to capture.

Patty
