Natural World

Is it Monday? No?


Oops. Well, that lasted a long time. Ah, well, I can try to blog daily but I can make no promises. Went for a walk yesterday, and another one today. They cut into my time but they are so rewarding in terms of filling my soul and slimming the body, not to mention the assorted benefits of sunshine.

A Skipper and a Honeybee share a thistle bloom.

Scissor-tailed Flycatchers are beautiful, and common around here.

A Tachnid Fly, in the Bristle Fly family, and i think you can see why.

  1. Great pictures. It’s hard to get some of these so close up. I know because I’ve tried and failed. The worst was my attempt to get a hummingbird moth on camera–entirely invisible.

    1. Thanks Laura! All of these were taken with a DSLR using a 55-250mm lens, so I can stand back and use the lens to get right up close. As for the hummingbird, they are a challenge, you need a very fast shutter speed to capture all that movement.
