Out come the bugs

Visited South Lincolnshire for a few days last week, so out i went hunting for bugs. All shots are OOC with the OM-D 12-50mm. The mating damsels are oof slightly but it's there as they were out of reach and i got them with quite a stretch - and i got stung - i would have liked another crack at them but alas it was just a quickie. Most images were taken in the vicinity of the wood on the first image, never seen wild garlic in these numbers before, acres and acres of wild garlic carpeting every square foot, the smell was fantastic.














This one is cropped by a wee bit.



Some tiny woodruff flowers - intensely white.

I quite like that one, too. The Balance of detail between the sky and ground is just right to keep the eye in the picture for a while.

Lovely shots, particularly that last one...

I do hope you took some of that wild garlic home with you! The flower buds are absolutely delicious!

Re: Out come the bugs

Yes we are approaching bug time, more and more each day. Macro lenses being dusted off knee pads out and strange people crawling around amongst the vegetation. All nice images, maybe time to start a "It's a Bugs World" thread again?
Particularly like the last one as well.

David

Yes Janet, everything tasted of wild garlic for several days.

Another shot of that cool tree. I wonder if they are bees just visible on the right of the tree, they are on all my images of this tree.

Re: Out come the bugs

Thanks Ed and Grissley. Grissley, they are the Large Red Damselfly, shortly after taking that shot we walked along a woodland glade and was inundated with them, i had 15-20 of them perched all over me, including both my ears and a couple on the camera. Damsels and dragons seem to find me a comfortable perch site, and largely ignore the Mrs, which she finds disappointing.

looks like a Common Blue to me.

This is a good site for anyone interested in dragons and damsels in the UK: http://british-dragonflies.org.uk/

Hi bilbo, that's an Azure Damselfly, very similar to the Common Blue, but the 'U' shaped black mark on the end of segment 2 separates the two species (a club shape on the Common Blue).
