It's a bugs life

Updated: Sep 1

A collection of photos I have randomly acquired of bugs and insects. I decided to pick one from each year I have been taking photos on a DSLR camera.

Some of the insects I have been able to identify and others I have not been so lucky.


Okay so lets start.

So there there it is, I thought this would be a 15 Min put together, i was wrong. 24 hours later I have finally completed it. I definitely miss calculated the amount of time it would take to find old images. I am quite shocked at the ISO and apertures numbers, especially my earlier photos. But suppose we all have to start somewhere :)

Once lock down is over hopefully I can add an 2020 image, which i'm extremely excited for as there are new L-series lenses to play with.
