A quick macro photography tip: when your subject is slow and compliant, and when regulations and common sense allow you to pull a branch, side shoot or flower stem from a plant (in your garden, or with weeds…don’t try this with wildflowers in any protected area!), try holding the subject at arm’s length against a distant backdrop, then move it slowly closer to the lens to find focus–you’ll be surprised at the results you get. This true bug, (Chlorochroa sp.) was found on blooming Dogbane, sharing the flowers with a large mite or perhaps a shield bug nymph.
"...mysterious and little known organisms live within walking distance of where you sit. Splendor awaits in minute proportions."
E.O. Wilson (Biophilia)
