Lockdowns are a drag. Who wants to stay home looking at the same four walls, as nice as they may be?
Fortunately, we have not been banned from the outdoors and fresh air. In May some beautiful insects begin to appear in force and I was out hunting them. With a camera of course.
Here are four recent beauties I captured digitally.

Give us informative, inspiring show & tell. Writers, send us poetry, lyrics, a short piece or excerpt and try to include a suitable illustration of some sort. For all images please include size (height by width), title & media. Thank you!
Beautiful photos, Milo! You know how much I love bugs – such diverse and fascinating creatures!
Beautiful photos, so much fun to take a close up, nature is amazing!
Great shots! My daughter has been doing a lot of bug photography – she was very impressed with these photos.
Milo, your bug photos are very interesting, detailed and beautiful too. The male dragonfly wings look like leaded glass.
