The Best of the Bugs

Simple Entomology
For about a year and a half  I've been photographing common insects. The good, the bad and the unloved. Fascinating creatures. I thought I'd post some of the better images I've been able to capture.

I use a Nikon camera with a Macro lens with a combination of incandescent and fluorescent lighting and sometimes a flash to control the color temperature.

No insects are harmed during this process.

Also, I'd like to thank the great people at http://bugguide.net for helping me identify these awesome little creatures.
