Four Spotted Skimmer
shot f 14 trying to get enough depth of field to get from one wing to the other. Shot 1/60th of a second at 400asa. Still missed it - the focus point was probably the stem so I lost the wing closer and the bug is blurry. Good try, but fail.
Species: Libellula quadrimaculata (Four-spotted Skimmer)

Four Spotted Skimmer On Diagonal
1/25th of a second - I'm really surprised it is sharp.

Orb Weaver On Web
The spider was backlit which is why it's so light.

Dragonfly With Nymph Skin
This isn't the dragonfly that just crawled out of the pond - the dragonflies liked this perch and regularly pushed each other off of it. I'm not even sure that is the skin of a dasher - there are other species of dragonflies in this pond.

Banded Alder Borer On Log
I was really surprised to see this bug - I have never seen anything like it in Canada before. I've seen Macro/bug blogs online, mostly in tropical countries and I thought they have all the interesting insects. We aren't so bad.

Orange Winged Grasshopped
There were about two dozen of these flying along the trail close to the highway. It's hotter over there because there aren't trees. These do look like butterflies when they are flying.

Banded Alder Borer
This is a photoshop composite of two different images - stacked in focus. I just figured out how to do that in photoshop and now it's my new crutch.

Paddle Tailed Darner In Flight
I didn't know at the time - you use the stripes on the body to tell the different kinds of Darners apart.

Four Spotted Skimmer On End Of Reed
It impresses me how patient these animal can be - if you are slow you can approach quite closely.

Meadow Hawk Back
This particular insect really liked this perch - he just kept coming back to the same place again and again.

Pacific Fritillary On Sitka Valerian
