Macro photos of insects on a sunny day

4개월 전

I shot these photos on a very fine Spring day almost two years ago, when nectar-filled plants were swarming with life. It was on Mont-Royal, a small mountain in the center of the island of Montreal.







Notice the pollen sacs on this bee's legs! The apiarian equivalent of our reusable grocery bags.




Flavourful wild raspberries were everywhere, providing an excellent photoshoot snack. Other hikers seemed to ignore them, perhaps from being too bourgeois to eat fruits which do not come in a plastic box. Which meant more raspberries for me!


I used a Sony a330 camera and a Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens.

Wow. All photos are really wonderful. They were taken like for the nature magazine!


That's a very nice compliment, thanks!

@a0i, Really beautiful pictures and for me few are special and those are Butterfly pictures. In my opinion nowadays Butterflies are reducing rapidly, hope that these beautiful creation will make our planet more colourful and lively. Stay blessed.
