Tiny Universe

A few itty bitty critters from around the neighborhood.

A tiny bee or wasp on a cornflower.


Isaac has been all about catching bugs, reptiles, and amphibians since he was two years old.  When he was small we'd take a picture and release.  When he brought me this little frog he rolled his eyes when I ran for the camera.  He made sure I knew he wouldn't be posing with the frog by his face like when he was small.


This grasshopper was a very tiny one.  I almost missed it taking a picture of another blossom but when I moved the green caught my eye.


This dragonfly looks like its waiting for clearance from the tower....ready for take-off...



And finally, a meeting place for bees.

You know, one of the things I have hated about getting older has been my diminishing ability to see teeny-tiny things. Thanks for capturing these images for me. :-D

Great nature pictures! I have plenty of bugs I could take pictures of but the roach-like Carolina bugs that are trying to escape the heat by taking refuge in my house just ain't the same.

That teeny frog is so cool.

I get a kick out of macros. I see you are enjoying that camera. Good for you! Methinks that the tiny bee is actually a kind of fly. They're called "bee-flies..." go figure.

Again, great pics!!

What a city boy I am. I had no idea frogs came in such a small size.

I like all the bugs in the flowers but my heart is with the itty bitty frog.

Puerto Rico has little frogs like that. They are called coqui (koh KEE). That's why you might see cartoon frogs on all kinds of Puerto Rican tee-shirts, mugs, and assorted kitsch.

That teeny tiny frog is adorable. Lovely images, Michelle. That first flower is Wild Chicory. I referred to it as a cornflower for years until somebody semi-recently set me straight. I figured I might as well pay that forward. ;)
