1) I found this jumping spider crawling up my backyard screen door. Talk about
bug- eyed!


2)


3) These
Japanese Beetles like to munch on my dad's fruit trees.



4)



5) Not sure on the ID of this moth. I took this picture in southern California. Any ideas?



6) I added this new guppy to the tank yesterday. He's already trying to put the moves on the female pineapple lyretail swordtail.



7) Harlequin Rasbora



8) Otoclinus. This busy little fellah is my algae eater.



9)


10) A school of Cardinal Tetras.



11) Fantail Guppy



12)



Thanks for looking and commenting.

Amazing stuff, Hung! I know how challenging it is to shoot moving fish in a tank.

Great sharpness and color Hung. I guess there are things to take photos of around the house too!

For a telephoto/bird photographer, you have certainly mastered close-up photography in a hurry! :O

I can't help you with that pointy-headed moth - I've seen them before, and I think I even identified one for someone once, but I can't remember what it is. If I find it, I'll let you know. The beetle, however, in not a Japanese Beetle (fortunately they are not much of a problem west of the Mississippi), although it is sometimes called a Chinese Beetle. It is probably a Green Peach Beetle, Cotinus mutabilis, common in this area. We often find their large white grubs in our backyard compost pile. One of these large beetles may be the culprit eating holes in our passion fruits: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...03&forum_id=80

Thanks Bob. I've had a 40 gallon salt water reef tank for about 4 years now. I used it off and on to experiment with fish tank macro photography. I've had limited success. It wasn't until recently that I started up a 2nd tank which was fresh water planted with tropical fish. This time around, I used a dedicated macro lens which helped alot.

Thanks for the comments Dan. While I was shooting the beetle up close, it suddenly woke up and started flying about a foot from my face. Freaked me out! LOL.
