Let's work on something much easier. Went to school on Saturday to drop the university vehicle off and took this photo as I was waiting for the bus. Nice and simple.
Worked on my thesis from the house today. I was originally going to catch a bus to school in the afternoon to clean out my office space, but I missed the bus. So I walked around the neighbourhood instead. I only had the 50 f2 OM lens on the camera, so I couldn't get too close (or too far) from things.
The delicate-looking Queen Anne's lace (Daucus carota).
Dragonfly too far away.
Bluet too far.
Suburbia. I like this image for some reason.
One of the insects that I really want to photograph in Ontario is Jagged Ambush Bug (Phymata spp.). I found one on D. carota today and brought it home to get closer photos.
Most of the photos did not turn out as good as I wanted. Here're some decent ones.
Jagged Ambush Bug (Subfamily Phymatinae)
You can almost see the beak-like mouthpart.
You can see its compound eyes.
It is rainy like mad out there at the moment. I will return this bug to its proper habitat tomorrow morning.
