I am fascinated with the amazing detail you can see on an insect when you see them really close up.  Insects are very cooperative subjects when it comes to photography. I also enjoy using insect designs  in my artwork. If you like seeing the individual hairs on a spider's leg, check out the photos below!  

Below is our online scrapbook. Click on a picture to see the full-sized photo, then use the 'Back' button on your browser to return to this page. Photos with * are pretty big, to show all the detail, so they will take longer to load. If you like photos of wildlife, check out our Wildlife page.
