I found this awesome fly today near some woodland. I have no idea why it's out and about in this cold and wet weather ( It probably thought the same of me) It was pretty cooperative and stayed still long enough for me to shoot a 8 frame focus stack under super high magnification.

The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life. 💚
So, I just took this photo of a ladybug (Coccinellidae). Instagram doesn't do it justice. Go to the link on my profile and find it there for the uncropped, full-resolution version. Please.

We've always called them daddy longlegs growing up, but I learned they are also called harvestmen which sounds cooler. Ever heard that they're the most venomous spider? Well, they're not venomous. I also don't think they're technically a spider.

While photographing the fly I recently posted, this guy popped by to say hello, and stayed just long enough for me to snap this. #macro #bugmacro #idreaminmacro
teaching myself the art of macro , way harder then I thought - especially when it comes to bugs that don’t stop moving 🤭#macrophotography #bugmacro
