  1. I love bugs, too – in photographs…

    (Okay, butterflies and mantises – mantii? – are welcome anytime. And I suppose I wouldn’t have so many lizards to watch around here without the cafeteria.)

  2. These were cool! Enjoy getting your photography experiments now and again. Keep having fun with it!
