I have a love-hate relationship with insects and bugs or, as some might scientifically refer to them, “creepy crawly buzzers.” I marvel at the diverse beauty of moths, butterflies, spiders and even the lowly potato bug, but I do smash the latter after getting a good look.
I can also get raging mad when a cloud of mosquitoes, black flies or others of the biting or stinging kind chase me out of the woods. However, I must admit, they all have their place on the food chain and are a necessary part of this world. So I set out to try to record a thin slice of their life.
These photos are not offered up as scientific observations or explanations. They are simply meant to foster an appreciation for these tiny critters at various stages in their lives.
