I suppose bugs come as part of the territory when you are a mom of two little boys. It is amazing how they find bugs EVERYWHERE! My older son especially loves to capture them, hold them, and play with them (well, most of them). I suppose it should be no surprise then, that I have found myself figuring out how to capture them with my camera! As much as they give me the heebie-jeebies, I honestly have found that I quite enjoy the challenge of capturing them from behind my lens. Here are a few....I hope you enjoy!
He's sorta cute, right?
Does anyone know what kind of bugs these are?
Even though I never in a million years would have thought I would want to see some of these creatures up close, I have been blown away by how intricate and beautiful they really are. And better yet, like I said before, the boys love checking them out too, so it is a win-win. Seeing beauty in all things... something I hope to teach my boys, and something I strive for myself.
