    You are turning out some unique photos Ken, excellent. They look like drawings, love it

  • Thanks very much for the kind words amarica. They certainly go a long way when just one of these insect macro shots may take upward of 4 hours to capture (getting the right moment). Thanks again

    Outstanding macro Ken, I have many of these bugs in my garden on my citrus trees. They are called Bronze Orange Bugs who suck sap from the shoots of citrus plants. Be careful around the adult bugs as they can secrete a corrosive, smelly substance and are able to squirt it at a considerable distance!

  • Thanks for the info Lesley. You are absolutely right. They really do emit a toxic smell
