Photo Phriday: Bugs, Up Close and Personal

Recently Mr. Rogue purchased the new Canon 50D for me and since then I have fallen more and more in love with photography. This week I was working with the macro lens we purchased and if you told me 4 years ago that I would sometime in the near future photo bugs then I would have assumed the crazy had finally taken over your brain. One thing that I really don’t like more than anything is bugs, they are creepy, they are crawly, and I don’t care if I am a bigillion times larger than them they still make my skin crawl. However since I got this new lens all of that ickyness has somehow been transitioned into fascination.

Today while doing the dishes I noticed this moth on one of the paper plates. Instead of my normal reaction which would include high pitched squeals of fear and locking myself in another room until Mr. Rogue came home from work so he could kill it and rescue me I did something entirely out of character. I grabbed my camera and took the plate outside and began shooting. Not only did I shoot the moth but then I went onto the fly, the oh so scary bee with stinger and all, and then the cream de la crème the SUPER NASTY SPIDER. I loved how these photos came out and instead of questioning my out of character subjects I am instead going to enjoy the minute detail these show of some of the most fear-inducing things in my back yard.


THE MOTH THAT STARTED IT ALL

It's surely amazing to me to see you photo bugs. I remember when you were about two and we were going to take our first shower. The drain had some hair which started to float - and you screamed "ITS A BUG!" So frightened, I would have never believed you'd be getting up close and personal with the bug world. Congrats! That hairy fly is scarry!
