Shy Mantis on a Sunny Day

http://david-lamb.artistwebsites.com/featured/shy-mantis-on-a-sunny-day-david-lamb.html
#Macro shot of a #praying #mantis being shy for the camera. More likely it was cleaning itself, but it was funny that it started doing so as soon as I began shooting. It was a beautiful autumn day, and all of the #insects were out taking advantage of the warm weather to feed. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.

It is also part of my Macro collection on RedBubble, even available now as throw pillows and metallic prints.

It is also available @ 500px in print and for digital download and licensing.

Stranger in a Strange Land

http://david-lamb.artistwebsites.com/featured/stranger-in-a-strange-land-david-lamb.html?newartwork=true
#Macro of an #ant inside a #flower. These black ants were herding #aphids, tending to them like a goat #herder to a goat. You can see the aphids in the background as black dots, while the ant was patrolling the perimeter likely due to my presence. Wanted to get a shot of the ant handling his herd, but he seemed more intent on defending them everytime I stuck my lens into the opening of the flower.

Honey Business

http://david-lamb.artistwebsites.com/featured/honey-business-david-lamb.html
#Macro shot of a #honeybee gathering nectar. I have seen a lot more honey bees this year than I have in the last few years. Hope that the population begins to rebound, as it would be a very serious problem if they continue to decline due to colony collapse disorder.

No Vacancy

#Macro of a #HalictidBee taking refuge in a #flower, making sure no unexpected visitors drop by. There were dozens of these tiny flowers, each one occupied by one of these bees. They were quick to defend against any intruders. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.
