Everyone was either found inside my apartment or on my balcony. Photos taken with my trusty macro lenses...

I don't have a great camera, but I wanna play!

Japanese beetles destroying my cherry tree. Snapped a photo before killing the horrible things. Pretty though.

Fire ants reign on my daughter's sunflowers. If you put your ear next to the leaves, you can hear them. Crazy!

Wish I could have gotten a better shot of these bees, but the flower was dancing I the wind. These little cuties slept in the sunflower. Not sure what the larvae are.

And baby trying to wrap up a tiny beetle that is still much bigger than it is. (Sorry for the poor focus. I hope you can still see the sling. image.jpeg

The photo was taken indoors, but the hornworm was found within ten feel of the door. Does that still count? image.jpeg
So chubby cute!

Lots of really nice pictures but I'm sorry, none of these look anything close to 10 feet. A few may push 10 centimeters but that's about it.

I think this is a group of male butterlies forming a lek. There are no flowers or water in this spot, but there were a lot of these little guys. image.jpeg

From the Merriam-Webster dictionary;
  1. : an assembly area where animals (as the prairie chicken) carry on display and courtship behavior; also : an aggregation of animals assembled on a lek for courtship

    Certain butterflies are known to use a lek for courtship.

Found this beautiful Carolina mantis on a bush beside the steps to our porch. I haven't seen one in a few months, love their faces.
