In the late winter or very early Spring, Maple Trees bloom, mostly unnoticed, except by those allergic to their pollen. The flower of a Silver Maple is quite beautiful and delicate when viewed up close. 105 Micro Nikkor, several images with different focus points stacked to increase depth of field.

Found this guy crawling around on my porch so I took him out into the sun to get a couple of shots before he took off. 105 Micro Nikkor

Stink Bug

I found this Florida Predatory Stink Bug in my woodpile. I couldn't figure out what it was so I got an old friend to ID it for me. I love the bright colors and contrast.  105 Micro Nikkor
