Today I have a continuation in my series that I am dubbing the Villainous Monstrosities. This will be the name for my macro series of bugs of all sorts. I intend to make a logo for the series and will write about the process of that here on my blog as well. This will be an ongoing series and I will put them into a new subcategory in my portfolio under the Other category in photography.
I will warn you now, there are some pretty nasty fellas in this series including more arachnids. I will put the spiders at the bottom, since I know so many people are bothered by them, that way, if you are, you can avoid them.

On to the creepy crawlies! (If you are ever interested in ordering a fine art print of any of these photographs, please use my print order page here.)

The header image is a really close shot of this dragonfly:

While I was shooting this large dragonfly, this curious little fly came along and took a close look.

This guy even creeped me out, and I’m not usually bothered. He was sitting in a outhouse in Itasca State Park:
