On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at all kinds of things not readily seen.

Macro Monday

It's been a slow week.  Windy very dry and just as warm.  I missed the best one by far.  A moth disguised as a stick. So well it deceived me three times at least and even after I flicked at it I still thought it was a stick.  When I did try to get a picture it was too late and it was gone.  This guy was small and didn't cooperate very well either.


These large black beetles are all over the place. Some may push an inch long.  This one played dead when it got flipped on its back.

Quite a few of these roaming around as well. Seems a bit early.

I was actually holding this plant with a transparent spider on it who refused to look at the camera or hold still to have his picture taken.
 Then there's Stretch who holds still real good.

    1. That's cat and me are acting just about the same. Not moving much except in the morning. I may put the swamp cooler in and they it will get cool. At least the humidity makes it palatable - that is the lack of it.

  9. I like that fuzzy moth. It actually looks cuddly -- as if a moth could be that. ...and I knew what you meant on the onion/garlic thing. It looks like both, I think.
