Just Another Bug Shot

Species: Shield bug | Location: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

I started my photography career photographing insects during my university days in my parent's back yard. Always fascinated with the macro world it was hard to pull me away and get on with regular living. To this day, over 40 years later, my strong passion is still alive and very strong.

While photographing these blue bells I spotted this shield bug and couldn't help but notice the contrasts of colour and shapes. It is still a joy to capture nature, big or small in all its glory!
