Lovely set, Brian.

The mossy, the lacewing and the beetle are especially interesting.

Enjoyable, pleasant, good, satisfying, gratifying, delightful, marvelous; entertaining, amusing, lovely, great. Was just checking the word finder for something else to say about your photos. I am running out of nice things to say. So I think I am going to just be sarcastic ...a bit out of focus, composition is off and framing/cropping what were you thinking ......
nice work, always enjoy what you share.

first fly is interesting, but specially enjoyed the mosquitoe shot, there are too few shots of mosquitoes around, they are very pretty insects I find!

Thanks again for the comments :)

Martin - agree re mossies- the males are quite magnificent things with the plumes and palps.
