    Great pictures Victoria. I love Ladybugs and the pic of the Bumble Bee is great.

        You are getting excellent closeups…what are you using?

          My Samsung S7 stupidphone. It IS really good at close-ups. It can’t capture the Moon worth a s***.

            Wow…I can’t believe it’s a phone. That is weird that it can give you these pics and not capture the moon! Does it have trouble with the light?

              It can’t zoom without graininess and it blurs distant light. It doesn’t have the ability to do the slow shutter speed for night shots.

                Ok I got you. It’s really good for being a phone though for closeups.

                  Yep. And, it has really good recording quality, too.

    Not sure about the spider but love insects and lizards. Strangely beautiful

      Wolf spiders are harmless. They get in the house a lot and become a cat toy.

      They ARE strangely beautiful. Couldn’t agree more.

    I’ve not seen a ladybug in a age. Enjoyed your shots.

      The Hinoeuma responded:

      Really? They are all over the place, here.

      Thank you!

    Nice nature shots!

    I love wolf spiders but I hate Brown Recluse spiders.

      The Hinoeuma responded:
      July 14, 2019 at 6:50 pm

      Thank you!

      Brown Recluse are bad, bad news. I think they are worse than Black Widows.

    The dragonfly looks unusual. Interesting.

      The Hinoeuma responded:
      July 14, 2019 at 6:52 pm

      They are odd looking. That’s why I said it looks like a Skivvy Waver. LOL!

    Awesome variety! Love the tiny bee shot and hungry bumbles, and isn’t the preying mantis looking at you? Cool! 🙂

      Thank you! It’s possible it was looking at me but, what struck me was its position. Instead of standing, it had its front legs stretched out like it was relaxing & contemplating. I wonder if they think…🤔🤨

    Apart from the spider one – they always give me the Heebie Jeebies – just such stunning photos
