    • Thank you, Pam. I love the tiny little beings all around me. It makes me so happy to see them going about their lives.

    • Hi, Mike. Thanks so much for your comment. I DO “do” spiders! They’re among my favorite photographic subjects. I included one today, in fact–just for you! 🙂

  5. very nice photos. But as for the lovely eyes… I think that is a matter of taste.

    • You don’t care for bug eyes, Shimon? They’re so shimmery and round. I find myself irresistibly drawn in. 😀

    • Thank you, Karen. I really like the lime green-eyed one, too. 😀

  7. These are amazing – the first and the second are quite jewel-like. Great shots.

  9. Oh those colorful little flies
    With their great big wrap-around eyes.
    Aren’t they a sight to see,
    Looking out at you and me?

  10. These are fabulous. I’m jealous. 🙂

  11. They are incredibly co-operative ! (taking picture like this in the natural environment is very very
    difficult, hence, professionals use very shallow (even less than half inch) glass chamber to prevent
    them fly away. Other people kill the insect before = hence the legs are often floating in the air or
    stuck to a stick only by the jaw.
    Lemony’s big-eyed friends are looks very natural though, unnaturally friendly = I wonder how she
    charmed them to stay still —– until she got perfectly focused shot ! It’s a mystery 🙂

    • Maybe I look like an insect to them. 😀

      • It can be true 😀
        Looks quite different though, the way of breading or
        the signal emitted from the body might have the same
        frequency (I called it in Z-Band) with them.

        Or, you have been completely infused into the natural
        back-ground.

        • 😀 Z-band. I like that! I also like the thought that I’ve been completely infused into the natural background.
