STOPS ALONG THE WAY

SMALL MILKWEED BUGS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

19 Comments

More summertime visitors. The milkweed bug’s bright colour acts as a warning to predators to stay away but attracts photographers as they stand out on most flowers. Both of these photographs were taken handheld with a 105mm lens. The first photo was taken using a flash at F14, 1/250 sec, the second at F11 at 1/1000 sec (no flash).

  6. The second photograph clearly shows what a good pollinator this bug must be.
