  1. It has been a tremendous series … so many awesome captures showing us a totally different view of our friends! Thanks for sharing Mike!! Tom

    • It’s time for me to concentrate on the larger marsh animals, Lucy. The tall grass has hidden them from me. Most of all, I am not seeing many insects at the moment, so it’s time to move on.

  2. It’s certainly been a great series of insect macros that you’ve shared, but I guess it will soon be my turn as Spring approaches on my side of the world. I have to do more searching this summer. I didn’t see hardly any insects last year except for bees. And when I did see an insect, I didn’t have my macro lens with me.

    • Thanks, Vicki. I hope you have a better summer this year. Our summer in the UK has been overcast and wet.

  3. Mike,
    It’s very nice! Why make it the last? Changing lenses for the season? 😉 I especially love the highlights on the wings.

    • Thank you, Kyle. Because the interesting insects are now few and far between. The marsh vegetation is starting the drawback, and the marsh cattle will be eating it; so new photographic opportunities will present themselves.

  4. Why? Are you tiring of it? Have you marked off your captures of all the known endemic insects in the marshes? What a teaser of a headline … 🙂

    • The insects time is nearly over for this year and I want to concentrate on fox, badger,muntjac, mink and otter activity as they get themselves ready for winter.

      • Ah-ha – I wondered … I’m looking forward to the badger and his mates, how terrific. Thanks Mike for the explanation 🙂

  5. Its good to hear, even though I like your insect photography a lot. However foxes, badgers, munjacs, minks and otters….well Im sure they will be very interesting to follow too!

  6. i went out early this morning, my usual hour, and noticed how much the light had changed. the sun is not quite as far-reaching as it was just a week ago…what an exciting time of year. i love ALL your bewinged creatures and know you will keep searching them out. and i´ll be enjoying them whether i make it to comments or not…

  7. And such a lovely bright fella to end the insects…! What beauties you’ve shared with us.
