"I'm ready for my close up, Mr. De Mille": wee cuties in the garden.

Garden teeny tinies, up close and personal.
This guy is not a lot larger than a dot when you're out there.
A 2-3 dot bug.

Therein lies the beauty of macro lenses! 

And cropped. There was NO WAY I could see these antennae in person.
How is THAT for a color palette from which to glean your breakfast?
Your little buggy office.

Earlier looked into it, but there are SO many kinds of beetles,
I decided I'd post that pup, even not knowing who it was.

Finally got a clear shot of a crab spider face.
That spider could rest comfortably on my pinky nail, fyi.

And, just 'cause it's super cute, a bee, comin' in for a landing...

So adorable.
And how can you not love a plant with blue pollen?

That's why this bee's legs are blue...

What a delight to see this small, beautiful world.



  1. Blue pollen! I must keep an eye out for that.

  2. blue pollen is really neat ... I agree!

  3. Love this post biobabbler! Also the close up view of the blue pollen.

    1. aw, thanks! So exciting to be able to see these worlds, now, through the magic of optics. I'm sensing a new addiction forming...

  4. I love it! And the sweet tilt of that bee's head as she angles in for a landing is soooo cute!

    I'm completely with you re: the absolutely addictive amazingness of macro lenses (in fact, stay tuned for similar comments at my blog). Hope you'll see, and post, many more wonderful images!
