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.
