Remember last week when I said I think I have a problem with regard to all my ant and aphid photos and that I was probably a hoarder? Here’s some more photos showing my addiction.
At least some change in the subject with red ants instead of the black ones.
This is a crab spider and I’m always quick to point out it is not to be confused with a spider crab – something altogether different. I know the difference between the two and never get then confused; however, at times I have typed and said spider crab when I know I meant crab spider. I often get my words turned around like that. I’ve never been tested but I swear to dog that I have at least a little bit of dyslexia in me.
I think some sort of orb spider.
Cosmos nearing a flat line state. I’ve always thought of eastern Colorado and western Kansas as flat line states.
I’m thinking this is a black swallowtail. And if I’m right about that I’m going to guess a female because of all the blue. Males have a smaller amount of blue back there but without a male and female next to each other it’s hard for me to tell, especially since I don’t have a good dorsal view.
Thank you for stopping by.
All photos, except the one noted, taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Sigma 105mm macro lens.
