Week 41 – Robin


Agapostemon splendens

A male agapostemon splendens or “sweat bee”. They like human sweat apparently. I never knew that… Thank you Google. 🙂 They are flashy and pretty like they are dressed up for Mardi Gras!

Used a an Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode with the LED ring light attached.


Week 23 – Robin


Little Hairy Back

A tiny little fly on a rusty chain link fence. I am always impressed with the detail the Olympus TG-4 gets on tiny critters. Used Microscope mode and the LED ring.


Week 16 – Becky


Lady Bug, Lady Bug, Fly away home

Wow I always thought lady bugs had spots or not spots.  Never seen one with stripes until now.  Searched on the internet and saw they can have other markings.  How very cool!  Shot with Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode.  Cropped, boost contrast and sharpened. Settings were f4.9,iso640,1/400sec.

Happy Clicking!
