Macro Friday– Robbers can be beautiful

Robberfly no wm

Hooking up again with Blogging From Bolivia for Macro Friday!  I linked up 2 weeks ago with my shot of the moon and got picked as the winner, which meant that I got to pick the winner for this past week. And, since I was the judge, I didn’t enter (because, really.. why?).  This week, I’m entering a photo that I took of a robber fly.  I never thought that bugs were beautiful til my son became enamored of all things insect; now, I see the beauty in them (even when I don’t really want to touch them…!). For more great macro shots, please click the button below and head on over to Blogging for Bolivia for the Macro Friday linkup!

  9. A great macro shot. I’ve not had the best of luck with insects, I’ve got a few. Now I kind of agree with you about bugs being beautiful, but some are really creepy 🙂
