    • Hi Rebecca. No macro setting on the iPhone. These are shot on the normal wide-angle lens. I sneak up on the critters and get the phone 2 or 3 inches from them and then crop the images in camera raw. The dragonflies are very cooperative. They fly at first but almost always come back to the same spot or very near where I have the phone camera waiting. The Assassin bug is fearless.

  1. Beautifully done, Tim. I saw a huge winged something this morning. It was uncomfortably close to the door. I panicked and ducked back inside. If it was any kind of bee or wasp… well, I’ve never seen one even half that big before. Or with legs so thick. It had a wasp-like butt, but a double set of wings, that seemed — just not bee-like.

    Anyhow, I guess that was my cardio for the day! LOL. Hugs on the wing!

    • Hi Julie. Are you ready for this? All the photos were taken with my new iPhone 12 mini for wide-angle photography. I bought the new phone instead of a wide-angle zoom for my Fujifilm XE-1. The iPhone on normal wide-angle works for a macro lens if the critters allow me to get close enough.

  2. Tim, did you know Green, Blue, Red/Orange, Black is the new white?
    Just kidding!
    Cute post, the way you tied the insects to songs. Just watched Chubby Checker. What a hoot.
    I know most of the songs, but will check out the 2, I might not know.

    • Everyone has their favorite songs, even the insects. I would think that Green Jeans might be the only other song you might not know. Thanks, Resa.

  3. I learn of the moon, insect names, and more here. Awesome photos. I only occasionally like the techno sound, but Blue – the KNY factory remix is pretty good as well.
