The Night my Indian Skills Failed.....

Thursday night ( I think it was Thursday) I went out during the wee hours of the night in search of bugs. Well let me tell you, they were in force that night so I though that this was going to be a walk in the park.......I was wrong. Taking pictures of bugs is hard enough during the day......but at night? FORGET IT!!! First of all, I was a little windy, second of all its dark, and third you run into EVERYTHING that you do not want to run into. So it can be a frustrating experience, I looked around with a flash light and found some subjects I wanted to photograph, I found some but like I said it was dark and I accidentally kept bumping into things and shaking the plants that the insects were on and so they proceeded to fly much for Indian skills eh? Just as I was about to pack up though, I did find a cool insect to photograph albeit he was perched on a rose bush, and that was a challenge all its own. Plus I went back to see if the spider I had photographed a few days a go was still there, and low and behold it was. Except now its guarding an egg sack, so I will be watching that. While I did lose several insects do to my clumsiness, I did manage to snap a few photos of the 2 bugs that I found towards the I suppose that the evening was not a complete loss after all. You just cant help but wonder though about the ones that got away. Hope you enjoy the photos until next time. Shalom.
