Wow. Such clarity. I don't know how you managed that at f/4, but it looks great. Tough looking critter.

Great captures. That first one (leaf hopper?) is crazy looking!

This ambush bug must have been young due to his size. It's prey, a fly, was 4 times it's size! The second shot must have been some type of hatching. Believe they are milkweed beetles.

Very nice shots. I especially like the middle one. Is that some kind of dung beetle?

Brown Centipede (Lithobius forficatus), I believe. Trying out a Canon FD Macro 50mm 1:3.5 SSC that I've had since the days of film. Recently got a Pixco FD-EF adapter (no glass). Shot at max and min focal distances, f16, hand held, using 90D built-in flash.

It's neat to get adapters to put old gear to use. Works pretty good, nice clear shots.

Excellent behavioral shot!

They turn everything they catch into a protein ball and take it back to the nest to feed their larva. Pretty good pest control for a garden, but not good if you want a lot of caterpillars in your yard.

A fly with a long snoot - Platypalpus genus, I think.

Interesting - thanks for the information.

Had a baseball game to cover this morning for the paper, & guests coming for an early dinner. No problem, just sneak out to the cluster of milkweed covered in life only 30 seconds from my front door.

The eyes aren't really in focus but wanted to show the color, almost bronze. Can't remember seeing such a variety of ladybugs. The second one is another shot with those things on it's back. Also seeing this a lot. Are these mites? I'm guessing it's not something good?

This an invasive lady beetle. You can tell by the 'M' on the back of the head. They can bite the h##l out of you. Lady bugs are harmless.

Really? Had no idea these were not from around here. "Georgia lake country"? Lake Acworth, Allatoona Lake?

That adapter was only $17 Canadian (inc shipping) - metal, and a good fit, with a lock setting for the aperture ring. I've also tried it on a 200mm FD prime - focuses nicely between ~3 and 15 ft.
