Insect-Aside Volume 2

More from the tiny life of bugs.  All shots either Kodachrome 64 or 25, Nikon F4, Nikon 105mm macro lens.  Some available light, some flash.

Below, ants as herders.  Ants have a symbiotic relationship with some aphids...protecting them from parasites and predators as the aphids produce a sugary substance the ants crave...it's fascinating behavior. I'll have more images of this behavior in a future post.

Insect-Aside, Volume 1

To help forget about the COLD and be reminded of warmer times, I present the following closeup images of insects.  All taken in the 1990s using Kodachrome 64 or 25, Nikon F4, and 105mm micro lens.  Their world is very interesting.  More tomorrow.
Posing, Emine Moth

Cuckoo Wasp
 Small fly on thistle. 
 Red-banded leafhopper
 Dragon fly
 Very tiny leafhopper...about 1/2 the size of your pinky nail.

All Things Must Come To An End

Tomorrow I will photograph my last wedding.  I'm not retiring from photography, just from weddings. I did this young girls photographs back in November of 1991, and now it's time for her wedding.   A fitting end indeed.

Up Close Along The Trail

Below, Red Cup Fungus.  Likes to grow on the woodland floor.  Very tiny; smaller than your pinky nail. 
                         Spider was hiding in the thistle bloom awaiting the unsuspecting bee.

Spice Girls at Sandstone

The date, August 3rd, 1998.
The place, Sandstone Amphitheater 
The characters... Kelly (my daughter on left) her friend Brittany on the right.
Also, a much younger Hyper.. The Kid is doing sun-squint , she was happy.
Waiting for the Spice Girls..
And, the screen opens, there they are. Lots of squeals.
I was just as enthusiastic as the girls... I really liked that group.
It was a really good show and the weather wasn't bad.
Good old Ektachrome 400 with Nikon F4 and 80-200mm lens.
Kelly being attentive and dancing too.
I remember getting in was fairly easy, getting out took over an hour.  Got the girls home around two AM.....   Worth it though.   Great evening.

Fannie's Barn Knob Noster

A few more shots from 1990 down in Knob Noster.... A very old barn, since burned, that made use of whole trees in its construction.... rather rustic though. Beautiful countryside on a rainy day. All black and white, T-Max 400.. digital tinting in most of the barn pix.
