p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Moth and Mystery Bug


I managed to snag a few shots over the last couple of weeks that I'm happy with. The first three are of a moth (actually not a moth, but a skipper butterfly--thanks Brian!) in my yard. Finally got some shots from an angle besides under-the-boot. The second three are of an insect that I've never seen before (ladybird larva--double thanks Brian!). I'm thinking that it's some sort of larva... And then there's a stink bug =P Enjoy!

All taken with Sony NEX-5N, Vivitar Series 1 105mm f/2.5 Macro, Yongnuo 560 Speedlight.
1/160 sec.
f/13
ISO 200





































Comments and suggestions are welcome. Thanks for viewing!

Best,
Scott

Lovely series.
Your moth is actually a skipper butterfly.
First bug is a ladybird larva- probably a harlequin ladybird

Lol! I'm wrong on both counts =P I appreciate the corrections. I hope I at least got the stinkbug part right... Thanks Brian!

Scot,

The larva is definitely a Harlequin. Skippers are intermediate between butterflies and moths, although usually included with butterflies. At that angle, it is difficult to tell if the bug is a Sheild Bug aka Stink Bug, or a (closely-related) Squash Bug.

I have just noticed that these were taken with a Vivitar Series 1 105mm f/2.5 Macro. It has given very good results. It is a pity that many Vivitar lenses are of indifferent quality.

Harold,
I understand that to be the case as well. Thank goodness my Vivitar is a Kiron
