Camera Critters I

I couldn't decide whether to do insects or farm animals for the Camera Critters, so I decided to do two posts.

There is a road on the north side of the Niobrara River. It has many photographic opportunities. These photos were taken when I visited in September. The first three photos were taken within about ten feet of each other.

This is a male American Rubyspot

This Woolly Bear Caterpillar showed the evidence of the short rain shower we had earlier in the morning.

Further down the road there was a patch of flowers where I found these guys

A Feather-legged Fly

Then there's this guy that I never did nail an id on.

And last, but not least, is a colorful guy that really moved fast. Never was able to id him either.

Kayleen: Excellant macro captures of the insects. I loved the all, nicely done.

The feather legged fly looks pretty interesting. I don't believe I have ever noticed one before. I'll have to keep my eyes wider open this spring. Thanks for sharing your eyes.

There is certainly NO WAY I can pick a favorite - these are all absolutely fantastic!

Okay, I wasn't going to scroll down for the insects (ick) lol, but you make them look beautiful! I really like the caterpillar.

Your farm animals were wonderful but these are excellent!
I love the little woolly with the raindrops - nice 'catch.'
