As most of you know, I love bugs (and macro photography)!
So far, Indonesia has been rainy, hot, and humid (not to mention it has a large amount of tropical rainforest) and that equals lots of bugs. So I can say that macro photography has been going pretty well so far. Here are some of the numerous adventures with bugs so far.
|This ant mimicking spider is in the genus Myrmerachne and I suspect it to be a female Myrmerachne Japonica.|
|This was my pet spider, Jubilee. She is in the Chrysilla genus.|
|This nice blue damselfly landed on a blade of grass, but flew away as soon as I snapped a second picture.|
|A green beetle we found on a walk through Sorong. It was a very metallic green, but it doesn't show up well in the picture.|
|The first scorpion I've seen in a while. I saw another one before this one, but it died, so I call the second scorpion Scorp the Reincarnated.|
|Not much to say about this ordinary wolf spider.|
|A very hairy jumping spider.|
|I don't even know what this thing was.|
|A (green?) huntsman spider.|
|A cool moth that flew into the cockpit.|
|A neon green beetle. It doesn't show up very well in the picture.|
|A green jumping spider in my arm!|
|A hunched up, grumpy spider.|
Soon we will head to Australia, and I will be in paradise (tons of bugs)! So get ready, because this day or the next, a flood of bug photos will rain down from the sky!
Until next time...
