In my experience, hoverflies will become used to your presence and not fly away while you are trying to photograph them.
I found this spider in a small patch of flowers.
This one-eyed sphinx moth (smerinthus cerisyi) wasn’t able to find any nectar in my friends’ kitchen.
This stonefly was about 3 inches long, and the design of the wings reminded me of an intricate stained glass window.
You shouldn’t let this ant help you with your porch.
I borrowed a friend’s macro lens to shoot these leafhoppers in Vermont. They are half the size of a grain of rice.
This jumping spider was sucking the last of the juice out of a greenbottle fly when I found it.
