Garden Snapshots: Bugs & Such

Olympic Games Opening Ceremony 2012-21 copyThe discovery of two of these guys munching away on my carrot tops gave me a great excuse to play around with my new camera and some new photo editing software, something I’ve had little time yet to do.  I was too lazy to swap lenses to one better suited to macro shots or even take the camera out of auto mode.  But for the most part they turned out pretty well and it was a fun evening of shooting and editing.  Hope you enjoy!

  1. Beautiful! Hey, that first caterpillar looks like the black swallowtail? We are currently “growing” 3 of them in our house right now ( I collected them off my parsley)
    . 2 of the 3 have formed a chrysalis. If they completely transform, I will post a video…
    Cool shots of the bees and other insects…I like the soft background.
    Is the beetle a spotted cucumber beetle or something? I am trying to learn about all the good and bad bugs now…

  2. Thanks, Donna. I think we will go out today and try collect the caterpillars too. Sounds like a fun activity for my little one. I just looked up information on the beetle and it looks like an asparagus beetle, not good as it was all over my asparagus patch. I guess I better take action quickly! I really need to learn a lot more about insect control this season. I had huge problems last year, but fortunately I still had a great harvest.
