Red Milkweed Beetle (Tetraopes tetrophthalmus)

Red Milkweed Beetle (Tetraopes tetrophthalmus)

Things have been relatively quiet here over the course of the last few weeks as I have been recuperating from a surgical procedure. The recovery has gone very well, however, I will have at least one more month of having to take things easy. I have been feeling well enough to take a couple of walks around the yard each day in search of insects to photograph with the Laowa 100mm 2X Macro Lens.

The final four images in this post are preserved exotic specimens that I have re-hydrated and pinned into position. These preserved specimens offer fantastic opportunities to explore natural-like settings as well as creative edits (a feature for a future post).
