Wetlands can be dangerous places too. Here's a damselfly that got a bit too close to one of his Arachnid neighbors!

(PS - slight variations in DOF and perspective - wondering which you prefer...)

Not sure which "bug" this is in the Arrow-Shaped Micrathena spider's web - but the spider sure is a little beauty!

We got rather hot & sweaty out at the bog - much to the delight of this Eastern Tailed Blue. They sure do enjoy licking sweaty fingers and things (can you tell what the metal object is?)

We also enjoyed seeing young Long Horned Grasshoppers on the horsetail plants, Pearl Crescents on the Swamp Milkweed, and Zebra Swallowtails on the Paw Paws.

(This thread is getting too long - sorry that I got carried away with too many photos!!)

Viking Mt & Cutshaw's Bog are only two of the many amazing natural places in nearby Greene County Tennessee. Hope you enjoyed this brief glimpse of the richness and diversity, and that you will share your comments & critique!

Beautiful photos as always Mole. I love the camouflaged moth. I'm not sure what the metal object is, but I'll guess it's a knob on a tripod head.

Just gorgeous! All of them!

I prefer the second photo, in your DOF experiment.

Your pix are exquisite. Were you using your K20D ?

Great series Mole, I'm impressed with your wild flower shots with that A 70-210mm. I don't have the 70-210mm but I'm now motivated to get my A 35-105mm out.

A lovely series, Mole. I used to have an F 70-210 and used it all the time for flowers and close-ups. It was an awesome lens, even though it died before I bought a digital camera, I still list it as one of my favorite lenses.
