boys and bugs

It's a good thing owning a macro lens has afforded me a slight appreciation for bugs. As the mother of boys it is inevitable that I will experience tiny hands thrusting many legged creatures in my face to oooh and awww over.


And they are quite adept at catching the little buggers of all sizes and species.


Ben has a bug catcher and has collected grasshoppers, ladybugs, ants, rolly pollys, lightening bugs, flies, and a few others I don't really care to know what they are. So far we've been able to convince him to release them each night so that the bug can return to his family...really, I'm just grateful not to have any bugs running loose in the house.

At least the butterflies are pretty. I love this shot of Alex and a Red-Spotted Purple, it's as if they are checking each other out.


6 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:
