    Caught these guys stopping by my backyard for lunch on Sunday afternoon. Taken with Pentax K100D and 18-55mm.

    I would appreciate comments on any of these shots. Thanks.

    Thanks for pointing out the cold WB - that explains why the colors aren't quite right. I think when these shots were taken the WB was set to tungsten (indoor lighting) rather than sunlight. A mistake I will try not to make again.

    I like the WB in these shots. With a normal WB, the photos would be nice, but the cold WB adds something. I don't know what it is, but I like it.

    The cold White balance makes it more difficult to separate the insects from the rest of the scene.

    I think that is true, especially for the first shot. I'll try taking similar shots with the correct WB.
