You have quite a collection of critters! I like the praying mantis as I don't see them often around here.
aren't bugs just amazing? all the details and colors.. and so ugly they are beautiful... i have seen all of these except the scorpion and the milk weed bugs... hope never to meet a scorpion.. LOL
Aren't they amazing! So tiny, yet a living creature. Love the grasshopper, can continue to live without scorpions. :-)
Never saw a live scorpion. Only dead ones.Spiders and scorpions are not insects.
That dragonfly looks like it's made out of lace. Nice critters you've got out there, good captures! :-)
Dragonflies I like, probably because of the way they fly about, and their appetite for those pesky mosquitoes.
The scorpion is the one that creeps me out! Great photos!
Dragon flies still give me the willys flying around my head.
Cool shots, Tex! Up close and personal.
Nice close up's! I wouldn't know one grasshopper from another. Didn't see any praying mantis this year.
walking sticks are so cool. I watched one the other day.
Your bugs are photography like. To me to have them crawling or flying. I will pass. The dragon fly actually bites me.When I swam last year in the lake. The dragon fly landed on my bathing suitand then bit me on the shoulder. My friend yells you have to be kidding.He or she is diving for more of your flesh. So that afternoon I had to swim underwater. Thank goodness I love to swim underwater.
I love the dragonfly! We call 'em mosquito hawks in Louisiana.
Very nice crittrers.In Romania, Milkweed Bug is called "Boul lui Dumnezeu". :)
Brilliant colourful shots. Love the coper coloured dragon. Used to keep stick insects in my classroom years ago. One day some escaped and ended up sampling the custard in the school kitchen.
Nice catchs, wonderful, Grasshopper is my favorite!
Fabulous captures on these buggy critters.
Wonderful photos! May I use one of these on my desktop; promise not to share with anyone else!
The dragonfly in that first picture looks like a piece of jewelry. Beautiful.
You manage a zoo of small critters.
Morning, interesting bugs in Texas, eek!!!! That Dragonfly is beautiful though.Blessings Francine.
A fine collection of close ups of these varied critters. I like the detail you got in this series. They made a fine post.
Great photos, Tex!The dragonfly in gorgeous and looks like a jewelry.I fear so much scorpion.Wishing you and yours a lovely weekend. :)
You've got 'em . . . Quite the collection!The coppery dragonfly almost looks like it was painted instead of real . . .
Very interesting and beautiful! But can't stand the scorpion or the spider! Lol
Insects are so other-worldly, so different from mammals.
So many bugs you have that we don't---thank goodness!! hahaMB
You have a great collection of interesting creatures. Each one so unique and all sharing the planet with us.Have a great weekend Theresa.Hugs,JB
You sure have a lot of creepy crawlies but great shots of them. Have a great weekend.
Oh, what a different collection of insects. Not all delighted. As well, in my country do not live scorpions. Greetings from Polish. Lucia
Mercy, girl...you really got some topnotch photos of some great little insects.....I really love the top one...copper color...love it.
Oh yeah the green walking stick still my favorite! You have quite the collection of little friends here! Grasshoppers I have a bit too many of again, and bugs in masses icky, (just had a mass of ants attack my foot while mending my fence and actually bite me last week) but your shots are incredible!
The post of the creepy crawlers...perfect for October!Did you get any rain?Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/?s=The+Adventures+of+Fuzzy+and+Boomer&submit=Search http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
What great bugs! My favorite is the walking sticks! I would move just to see walking sticks. :) Oh, and gully washing rain. :)
Love all your pictures today! You sure have found a wonderful assortment of bugs!
I have not seen the milkweed bugs before, so very interesting. You can keep the spider and especially the scorpion.
Great assortment! The grasshoppers have been deadly with my flowers though. UGH! :)
You get all these things close to you, or did you have to send away for them? Amazing shots - 4th one (grasshopper) is particularly sharp.
this post just bugs me for some reason, ha ha :) So many great closeups! :)
Be still my heart!!! I love that first one of the grasshopper! All are nice, but I just had never thought a grasshopper was that nice looking till this shot.
The walking stick creatures really amaze me...well they all do. But I had never seen one until a blogger posted a picture.Great photos!Jane
I've never seen a copper-colored Dragonfly.....absolutely gorgeous. I'm afraid I'm very familiar with the scorpion. After 14 years in the country we still get plenty and I've been bit a few times...OUCH does not express the feeling....giggle.Thanks for sharing the photos!
Great closeups Tex!I have.nt seen a scorpion in my area!A grasshoper,yes!Dimi...
Quite a variety, Theresa.Are the scorpions home-grown?Peace :)
You do get the best close-ups and I even like your bugs etc. These are terrific!
That's quite an assortment. Glad I don't have to deal with scorpions!
Cool insects (except the scorpion)! I loved finding walking sticks as a kid. I never see them anymore. Maybe they are around me and camouflaging themselves too well.
Oh this is a great post. I really like all those insects. In my opinion I think grasshoppers photograph the best. Can't say why, I just think they do.
My goodness, some wonderful shots here with amazing details and vivid colours. A favourite? So difficult to choose, but perhaps, the "leafy-green Katydid" - love the knowing expression in his/her eye and the legs...
Texas grows bugs big like everything else!
Wonderful macro shots of nature's critters!Happy Weekendartmusedog and carol (A Creative Harbor)
Beautiful images, so colourful, I love 'em.
Great shots but creepy or scary or what? Have a super Saturday.Best wishes Molly
Is this scorpion dangerous?
You find a few top insect picture opportunities. My favourites are the second and the fourth picture.Greetings,Filip
Your own little creepy-crawlie rainbow!
T, Oooo, what a great variety of bugs! Neat series of shots!
A nice collection of critters! :) Great photos!
Not gonna lie, most of these would have me walking in the other direction. But I love looking at them through your lens.MersadMersad Donko Photography
Interesting critters! I wouldn't want to get near the scorpion though.
I missed your whistlers.....on Friday? You know how to throw this ol' gal off balance!! [wink]And the insects are fabulous. I did not KNOW they were called milkweed bugs.
That's a lot of bugs! ;-)
Quite an amazing variety, love that stick bug!
Wowza!! I do love bug wings!!
First....I no longer want to sleep on the deck. Second....the dragon fly is beyond awesome and third....if you took these images with your phone, I am selling my Nikon ;)
You have an amazing eye for beautiful creatures. I love watching critters esp grasshoppers and praying mantis but stick insects are cute too. Hope you have a good weekend.
Love this post! The other night my daughter and I were home alone when we started hearing a very loud and strange clicking sound. Turns out we had a katydid in the entryway!
Great collection of pics!Eastern Amberwing (Perithemis tenera) for sure.I never seen green walking sticks, only brown ones.~
What a collection of insects Teresa !!!We do not go to Porto few days.Good week;))
All pretty but you can have the scorpion. I've had an encounter with one twice in my life and they don't make a person feel good.
Wow, that's nice. I love grasshopper !
Oh, these are breathtaking in their clarity.
Clear and precise pix....each and every one!!!!...:)JP
Hello Theresa, wonderful series of insect shots. MY favorite is the first dragonfly and the last shot of the colorful milkweed bugs.. Thank you for linking up, have a happy weekend!
I felt like a kid again enjoying this fabulous collection!ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^= . <3 . >< } } (°>
You have so many really nifty bugs! :) Love those wings in the first shot.
You make bugs so interesting!
These are amazing captures. Creepy, but really amazing! You really should be paid for your photography, my friend.
I love the katydid. We saw one here once. Great shots, TexWis!
These are great shots of some of the littler critter you have hanging around. The old katydid looks like he should have a cane and an ear trumpet.I don't like the looks of that scorpion at all!
Hi Theresa, Well... we have bugs and lots of 'em here in Florida. I think we have you beat. Love all your pictures. Do not like Scorpions at all but most folks do not. Have a great day tomorrow.
I'm so fascinated by bugs - really, Love the pictures. I've never heard of milk weed bugs. Good thing, they aren't in WI as the Monarch caterpillars eat the milk weed.
Some of those bugs really ARE bigger in Texas! :-)
i love the dragonfly & all those grasshoppers ... so cool!! what fun critter times. ( :
Beautiful pictures Tex, love the close-ups! I walked into our bathroom the other evening and found a Scorpion. I see them all the time outside but never understand how they can get into the house!
Great pictures but insects creep me out. Especially walking sticks!
Wow what a group. How do you get these shots? I have been seeing dragon flies. I've never seen them before. We're not too far from water and some woods on the edge of the property. Don't know if that's why. I don't think I could capture them though. But I did get those squirrels the other day. Thanks for coming by. Have a great Sunday.
What a variety of insects! Lots more than we have here.
great collection of bug macro's.
You sure do have a very nice selection of bugs around your place! I have seen them all here except the scorpion, but there was a kid on my street that had one in a box back when I was in middle school. I did see that one but it is not native to West Virginia.
Great series. You have really captured some wonderful shots. That face on the Great Granddaddy Katydid is fantastic.
Those are some great bug shots. I love shooting photos of insects as well, not sure why because I certainly don't like them anywhere near my person....but it seems okay when they are in their own neighborhood.
They are such amazing little creatures! I adore good photos of insects, and these are wonderful. :-D
Fantastic close-up shots!
Beautiful insects! Especially that dragonfly! All wonderful macros!
What a great insect collection. The scorpion kind of creeps me out but the grasshopper in the next image is just amazing. That's a beauty of a shot.
What cool photos. Not only do you do great long distance bird photos, but you can get super sharp photos of amazing bugs. I've never seen most of them. The green stick bug is very cool!
I prefer furry to slick, but great photos. You can keep most of them down there--LOL! ;)
So many insects. The snow is soon to come - so no insects here..
What a beautiful pictures of different insects.Perfect photographed, my compliments.I wish you a good Sunday.
Wow, what amazing photos. I've only gotten up close and personal with a scorpion once. That was enough. :)
Lovely photos! I liked your beautiful dragonfly very much!
What a wonderful and COLORFUL series of images with which to enjoy my morning coffee!Thank you for starting out my day!Ain't Nature wonderful?
You have some very cool critters Tex!
so happy that I've never seen a scorpion! you have quite a collection of visitors! :)
Even your creepy-crawlies are beautiful! These are gorgeous pictures.
I like how you see beauty in creatures most people are afraid of.
I like the grasshoppers and the dragonfly. They're all good images, Theresa.
The insects are all very neat looking! I don't think I'd want to run into the scorpion or spider though!
You've gone buggy! LOL Love that Amber Wing. In fact, I liked everything but the scorpion. I find them creepy for some reason.
Most interesting....you can keep the scorpion, though! ;-) (Do milkweed bugs destroy the plant...the plant that monarchs rely on?)
Wow, what a great collection of "bug" pictures! A whole different variety of bugs than what we have over here on the West Coast...
Amazing variety you have in this post!
Wow, lots of Hues of Insect (not a few), Theresa :-)Did I see scorpion in your post before, maybe so. So scary.... I hope you don't see them close to you often!The first dragonfly caught my husband's eyes p:)Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
you took us into insects world! wow great capture... i am quite scare of insects. but i liked the beauty in your photos :)
A nice variety of bugs! I think Katydids and Praying Mantises are among the coolest of bugs.
Very beautiful images and how are photographed up close.
Great closeups of all of them.Were all of them taken around your place?
Love all those critters, especially the dragonfly and the green walking stick! Had to scroll past the spider though! LOL
Wonderful collection of critter photos. Love the dragonfly.You are such a talent with your camera.
That's a lot of bugs! I haven't seen any garden spiders lately. I might actually miss them (or maybe it's just my garden I miss). Great shot of the dragonfly.
Tickle has been eating grasshoppers. Crazy love your pics.
a great variety of small critters. :)
I LOVE the dragonfly. You can keep the spider and the scorpion to yourself. :)
Love the dragonfly....
What a beautiful and sharp pictures Theresa !!! Beautiful colors and so beautiful Hedler. I think you grasshoppers really fantastic! Beautiful drawing, bright, sharp and amazing beautiful colors.
