So I was taking a few shots yesterday dawn, and I found this little insect on our Chinese Lemon tree. I really like the way it was taken, tho I don't know what's its name.

Some nice shots everyone. These can be tough to get because they often don't sit still for long.

Caught this one beeing a busy bee. I was shooting other things and this guy showed up. The lens I was using is not a Macro, but I shot them anyway.

I really like the last one. The white on the wing lining up with the stalk(?) in the background is perfect. I do like the translucent quality of the wings in the first shot as well. Nicely done.

Here's a mantis that came to visit just the other day. Shot with a Nikon 60mm Micro with a 5N.

Like I said previously, insects and bugs scares the willies off of me, nevertheless though this photo is brilliant.
