Default I watched the video ♥

Great bug pics in that clip and a small bit of nature photography tips such as, take lots of pics and you will end up with a few good ones.
We took a drive to a cedar grove in north west Montana and I didn't see much in the way of tiny bugs mostly because I wasn't really looking for bugs. I was way too distracted by the large Western Red Cedars, not to be confused with the Cedar that is used for closets and chests. Those cedars are really a type of Juniper. Western Red Cedars seem to be more like Redwoods than junipers. I don't really know though.
Here is a picture I took that day in the area of the historic old forest service rangers cabin near Bull Lake.
