    Wink Random pics...

    Okay here is another assortment of pictures. The first one is water in a fountain...really looked crazy on my camera.



    This is an Oleander Moth also called the Uncle Sam moth or polka-dot wasp moth. The caterpillars are considered a pest by some pple but I think the moth is beautiful:










    A really big wasp that could cause a painful sting:




    Monarch caterpillars on milkweed:


    Random moth:


    A lizard watching me photograph the wasp:


    And a few other pollen feeders:






    Enjoy!

    Cool pics! That one from the fountain, especially. The lizard is really cute too, and I like looking at the moth as well...I love the clarity of your pictures and the amazing detail.

    Aww thanks BD...you always have the nicest things to say!

    I want to go on a weekend adventure sometime soon and find some more interesting things to photograph. I would love to find a butterfly house to visit or an area with a number of wild birds.

    Thanks all,
    Shann~

    I am speechless ! The first picture is cherry on the cake. I can see a boy and a girl (with pony tail) next to one another, in that drop. When seen as whole it looks like a deformed skull !

    You guys are all so awesome...thanks for all the positive comments and encouragement! I do this mostly as a hobby but would like for it to be more than that someday.

    Love your pictures, Shann!!! First one deserves a frame!
    I really should frame some of my photos. If I can find someone locally to print them at a good price I just might do that...thanks Margo!

    Here are a couple spider pics from today...I think a nest of these things exploded somewhere nearby because they are everywhere!! I have never seen this many spiders in one place...every spot I see has a web with one of these guys in it.

    I can count about 40 of these outside just walking around the house.







    I know these aren't as detailed as some of my other pics, but since you all like looking at them I enjoy sharing them with you! If the weather is nice tomorrow I hope to get some flower photos.

    Shann~
