I was inspired to take macro photos of tiny insect nymphs yesterday. It's been quite a while since I've done this, and I'd forgotten how much fun it is!
I started with this katydid (I think?) nymph. For a sense of scale, it's on a bloom of Verbena bonariensis. This is a baby insect!
Here's the bloom for perspective:
...even longer antennae:
I love the coloring of this little guy!
Easy to pick out and photograph.
Unlike the next subject, another katydid:
This species is very shy, putting the stem between itself and the camera whenever possible.
Again, so small!
That's the flowering structure of scouring rush, Equisetum hyemale for scale,
Not so small, so happy on an allium bloom...
...a honey bee.
One of my favorite things is a pollen covered bee!
I'll end with a single spider image:
The morning light was better, but I didn't have the camera at the time. This is one of my favorite small garden spiders which I believe is an Orchard Orbweaver, Leucauge venusta.
How closely do you look at your garden?
