Although my lens has its limitations compared to a true macro...it doesn't stop me from getting close to bugs to photograph. 1. This wasp-mimic fly sports 'don't touch me' colors but has no stinger. 2. The focus on this Carpenter bee is not great, but it shows how this robber pierces this wild pea flower to get to the nectar, damaging the flower and circumventing the pollination cycle: 3. Once again, the focus isn't the greatest, but it shows a parasitical fly listening for leafcutter bee larvae in my wall. I watched it find a nest and lay eggs in the leaf filled hole: 4. This big housefly was very tame and sat nicely to get this picture. Look at the sticky pads on his feet!
