On the Wing

Fleeting insects buzz, dart, dance

A feast on the wing

I had intended to share my monthly Changing Seasons post today but unfortunately I haven’t actually finished sorting through all of the photos I’ve taken. I’ve visited and photographed the meadow so many times over the past few weeks that I have an absolute mountain of them!

Luckily I have edited enough of the pictures of insects to share a few of them. These are all ones I won’t be using on The Changing Seasons post but that I like too much to just leave sitting, unseen, in a folder on my computer. I hope you like them.

I thought I’d leave you with a final picture – the photographing of which actually inspired the haiku but that wasn’t in focus enough to be placed at the top of the page. I didn’t want to leave it completely off, though.

  1. Beautiful and amazing! Definitely too good to be languishing hidden on your computer. They should be in a book 🙂

    • What a lovely complement, Ali. 🙂 Thank you very much. You wouldn’t believe just how many blurry, out of focus pictures I have for every one I can use!

    • I’ve just been going through some slightly older posts and I found this comment. I’m so sorry I haven’t responded to you sooner, Linnea. Thank you very much for commenting and I’m glad you like them. I’ve really enjoyed photographing all of the little creatures that I’ve spotted around, this year. My grandfather was an entomologist and I’m starting to see his fascination with insects. Unfortunately my phobia of having things crawling on me makes it a little difficult at times… Thanks again. 🙂
