    These are few of the insects and spider found on my mail box. For some reasons, about 10 different kinds of insects or spiders running around outside or inside my mail box.

    I love taking pictures of bugs and I love your captures!

    The first one looks like an assassin bug instar, the second a jumping spider (my favorites!) Yes, ladybugs are not all-cute critters, they are voracious predators along with their larvae form. Very beneficial in the garden.

    I am no pro, but I think your photos are superb.

    I'll try my hand at my first posted macro insect photo, a praying mantis that was dining on a honey bee, attended by little jackal-like gnats out snagging a dangerous meal:
