Nymph of a stink bug. Not sure if there is a specific species or not.
My first posting of a Monarch this year. Wish I saw more of these.
Was having some fun with my new macro setup.
I call em sweat bees. I'm realize now with macro photography there are more than just one kind of tiny bees.
First time seeing this caterpillar. Not sure what it is. Got a couple cool macro shots of it though.
First for me
Passing through Spring Grove heading home I saw these out in the partially frozen pond. I had just a little time to take some distant shots before I scared them away. My first Ring-Necked Duck observation!
Watched three of them here. I've never seen so much Osprey activity in this area in previous years. I've also noticed more Osprey activity in the other places I've visited this year. I've had several people who frequent this park that they've watched the local Bald Eagle chase away the Osprey.
