  2. My preschool students are fascinated with bugs and I'm trying SO hard not to teach them to be afraid (like me)! Thanks for the up close and personal!

  6. The diversity of nature is beautiful. It's amazing that things we ordinarily don't see have such amazing characteristics. And I love snails. :)

  8. It is amazing the little creatures that are running around living their lives and most of the time we are oblivious to this. I used to catch grasshoppers when I was a kid. Nice pictures. Rita Spratlen rjspratlen@gmail.com

  9. Katydids! At least that's what I think it is. The bugs that look like sticks or leaves are so cool to me.

    But YUCK to that spider.

  10. It's amazing how things in nature can either blend in without being seen, or have the most fascinating colors known to mankind!

  12. Bugs, Creepie crawlies, whatever you want to call them...I like these pictures, they're beautiful! I don't like them in my house, although the snail isn't very intimidating...I wouldn't freak if he was there. :O)

  17. I love how these creatures have natural camouflage and blend so well into the environment. Like the little fellow who can be mistaken easily for a green leaf.

  18. One more comment as required. I like the fact that this post reminds to be aware of all the things in nature, even the smallest as they all are miracles in their own way.

  24. Whenever my son and I play outside we always look around and see if we can find any bugs that he has never seen. We look for other things that he has never seen to. I love finding tiny things that seem insignificant and showing him.

  30. I love these photos as a horticulturalist, bugs and plants are symbiotic with nature! Great photos!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow! You saw all of these things?? I am not a fan of bugs at all. But I think it's cool how you found art in something that I would normally run from.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Very cool pics! My son had one of those leafy bugs land on his leg while playing outside and nearly jumped out of his skin ;)

  33. I do not have an expensive camera to get great shots but I like taking pics of insects and spiders in my yard.

  35. Great pictures. We get the pleasure of seeing things like this all the time here in the country. I could do without the spiders though.

  36. The green grasshopper kind of guy is actually kind of neat and amazing.

  37. i have a love/hate relationship with spiders. I appreciate them because they're awesome and eat bugs, but they still creep me out and you won't catch me touching one voluntarily.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love the first photo.

    Very cool.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love the red bug picture the way it's suspended in air. It's amazing that all these still images of bugs were able to be captured.
