Macro Friday--Bug

I am so glad I checked my Facebook and saw Laura's Macro Friday Post this evening!  It was a reminder to me that I needed to link up!

I had a bit of fun a few days ago out in the back yard snapping photos of flowers.  I know that I say bugs and flowers are overdone in macro and I try to avoid them, but sometimes you just can't help yourself...

Bug


This is what I call a lucky shot!  I wasn't really aiming to get a bug at all but this guy happened to crawl into my shot at just the right moment!  I moved my focus over a hair and this is what I got!  I love that you can see the pollen on his face and legs.  What do you think?

This is a wonderful shot. I enjoy shooting the critters in my garden (no pun intended). I think this little guy is having a great time.

I love the way he is the same colors as the flowers, and the pollen really shows the science and the wonder of flower pollination.
