April 25 - June 15, 2019

I enjoy photographing insects for several reasons. First is the challenge of image acquisition. Most insects in nature are tiny and in constant motion, which taxes the photographic medium for clarity and detail. Second is the pleasure of studying a really good macro shot to learn about the subject of the photo. Discovering the complexity of a bee’s foot was a revelation for me.  

Third is the interaction with the insect itself during the capturing of the photo. Normally, insects are very skittish and will depart upon any disturbance. So it was a magical moment when a dragonfly I was photographing flew off and then later returned, seemingly presenting me with an ant it had captured. That moment made me tingle!
