A couple of examples of the varied bug life in Far North Queensland. The first is the nest of some Green Tree Ants getting agitated because some fool human is annoying them. They don't sting, but they have very sharp and powerful jaws which they tear your skin with before squirting formic acid into the wound. You wouldn't be too bothered by one, but accidentally disturb a nest and get a swarm of them all over you and you're in trouble.

The second is of course a mantid, ID unknown at this stage.

Nice. Something about these that give me fits, is trying to capture the silver colored spots. All I ever get is white. Would dropping EV help?

All I did was adjust the speed to accommodate possible wing movements, used AI Servo, and let the camera pick the ISO. All other setting were determined by the camera.

Through a slightly fogged lens. I was really surprised when it fogged over as hot as it is outside today.

Facing into the sun, and then facing 90 degrees away from the sun. He/she was really patient with me. Or should I say not too disturbed by my presence.

Nice mantis shots, my favorite insect. I don't see any sign of the lens being fogged. A lens will fog if the lens is cooler than the air.

A very cute bug, with interesting colors. Is it a kind of hemiptera?

Found this in the archives - a tiny bug. It has interesting feathery spines. I think it might be a leafhopper or planthopper nymph.

A grasshopper in the garage. Not taken by the new macro lens but by the new Sigma 70-200, as that was the lens on the camera.

That lens did a fine job on the grasshopper!
