Just a Gallery of My Favorite Pictures of Insects on Plants!

Dotted around the galleries of photos on this site you'll find lots of pictures of insects on plants. It's one of my favorite themes!

Being lazy, I just thought I'd bring my very best together on one page to save searching around.

They're shot using one of my specialist macro lenses which allows me to get really close. I also set the camera onto 'rapid fire' so for every one you see here, there are dozens of rejects.

Most of my subjects are bees and wasps who are far too busy gorging themselves on nectar to be bothered about me stick a lens right next to them. Pity butterflies aren't so obliging: They may fly quite slowly but they're mostly gone before I get close. I'll keep trying though.
