I had LOTS of picture subjects as you can imagine. Sometimes my camera would not focus on some, but I got others really clearly.

I think this first one is either a common house spider or an orb weaver:



Here is some kind of moth, with an interesting out-of-focus bug on the bottom.



This spider may be the same species as the other one.



And this is a firefly I apparently snapped mid-flash.



I didn't see any of my favorite moths though. There were hundreds of midges in the eaves, and junebugs flying around. All for one of my favorite hobbies!

I enjoy taking those kinds of shots as well. Can come across some interesting critters.

Bugs...I'm not interested. I also like fireflies.

I love these shots; they make me realize that I don't appreciate these bugs when I continuously look at them from far away.

Nice hobby...

Love insects...took one class in entomology while in horticulture school yrs. ago...gathering them for a mounted collection was a bit hard...but the search was fun and rewarding.

Ever get luna moth or walking stick photos?

Some more insects! Wanted to find my original post rather than making a new one and cluttering up the forums. Anywayyyyyy.....this is what I got so far tonight, and I would have gotten more, but my battery ran out, d'oh



Not really sure what this one is, definitely not a lacewing though



This one was SOOOOOO green it literally begged for a picture.




Never seen this kind of mayfly before...it has HUGE eyes.



No idea what these are. I tried to take a picture of one on the siding and it kept flying off, I DO know they are so tiny they look like they are invisible. Their shadow gives them away.



Another one of those big-eyed mayflies, and another mayfly.

Those shots are awesome!

glad you added to the original post as I hadn't seen that one and it brought it to the top again.
