Unusual art for an unusual world!- Ecco
Insects are a class of invertebrates within the arthropod phylum that have a chitinous exoskeleton, a three-part body (head, thorax and abdomen), three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes and one pair of antennae. They are among the most diverse groups of animals on the planet, including more than a million described species and representing more than half of all known living organisms. The number of extant species is estimated at between six and ten million, and potentially represent over 90% of the differing animal life forms on Earth.
Ever since I was a kid I have been fascinated by insects. I used to spend my summers searching for them, I was the great hunter with my net and jars. Even as I got older that fascination never ended. Insects are the masters of achievement, they are one of the most unique forms of life worthy of great admiration. When you get up close to them is when you can appreciate them in all their glory. I have a lot to learn about insect photography but I am enjoying the process. Equipment is also a factor. While I have a nice camera my setup is not the best for great macro works. So I do the best I can with what I have. This does not stop me from trying to get the perfect shot. I was out hunting my favorite insect yesterday the dragonfly, when it occurred to me I am at my happiest when I am hunting bugs. This is an activity I have done for as long as I can remember. I love bugs! Enjoy the little aliens that surround us.
