Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

Gooseygirl, good idea to include the hand to show relative size of the insects. Nice job.

We have so many lady bugs in the summer on our farm. My son likes to catch them and put them in a bucket.
In this photo, I shot two ladybugs in the bucket, crawling on a piece of dried grass.
(I didn't have time to grab my good camera, had to use the little point/shoot.)

A spider is a bug as far as I'm concerned, even tho' I do know they techinally aren't. I still squash them when I find one!

A great shot tho. How big is that thing?

You made me smile. What a beautiful spider. Do you know, then, if the one I photographed is a wolf spider (or garden spider)? That's what my son-in-law thought.

Well, gosh, I thought I had something for this assignment. I appreciate the education, and the spider photo was worth it. I'll save it for a spider assignment.

Hi

Actually spiders are not insects, they belong to a different classification, the Arachnida, while insects belong to the insecta, anyways I wanted to show you close up of a south american spider.

OK. Finally got around to digging up an insect photo. We had some cold weather the last few days and all of the bugs went into hiding. It must be warming up a bit though, because the bees in my backyard were moving for the first time all week this morning.

The monarch butterflies on the western side of the Rockies typically winter along the Pacific Coast. We lived in Santa Cruz for a few years and saw many butterflies. If you get a chance to see Monarchs in a wintering location go. When it starts to warm up its very magical in the woods. They cling to the Eucalyptus trees and when it warms up its mating time and they float and fly around while masses of them just hung in the trees looking like leaves. Very beautiful. I can't seem to find my clump pictures at the moment.

Okay, I just have to add another photo I took....
I keep telling everyone I have fairies in my backyard and the other day I saw another one. I didn't even see it until I had the photo on the computer!

The first link shows the picture that I took. It is not good at all of the flowers, but if you look towards the lower right hand corner you may be able to spot the fairy. (Try the large size)
The second link is a cropped close-up of the fairy!

The first one is hard to see they are so camouflaged. A bee is dragging a huge spider. If you look close you can see the spiders eyes.

It's funny that most people have an aversion to bugs when they look so beautiful close up. I love the wings on that guy.

Beautiful photos of the dragon fly Charly-X. The network within the wings was tack sharp. Excellent job.

Winter arrived over the weekend, so finding any critters this week will be tough. I think I have a pic or two from over the summer... I'll have to look through my archives.

Was hoping to get outside and get a more recent insect photo, but my unknown illness is giving me a run for my money the past few days and I'm just not getting there. But this is one that I am rather proud of. Captured in my backyear last year.

Great shots everyone. This was good assignment - I think just about everyone has a fascination with insects.

I see lots of great dragonfly shots. So, I'll post one too. This was taken last month during a brief camping trip.

And I found this bee a couple of weeks ago on a sunflower. Sunflowers were scarce this year due to an unseasonably cold summer.

Just get online and check 5 or 10 a day.

I'm losing sleep over all these beautiful photos. I should be in bed now so that I can get up at 5:15 to go to the aerobic class, but here I am clicking and clicking to see all these great submissions. There is no way way to comment on all these exceptional photos! And 100% of them are out of this world! Everyone has done such a beautiful job. Even when I don't think mine is as good someone else's is people comment on mine and give me a little hope. Perhaps I can transfer that encouragement to start staying on my diet better. All it takes is one comment to make you feel like you've accomplished one thing. And positive vibes bring on more positive vibes. Okay, this maybe should be a blog, but I feel better putting it here.

Is there a way to see all the photos without reading every post? I want to comment on every single post but I would have to stay up later. :-( Any suggetions on what to do?
