Villainous Monstrosities! Macro photo series of insects

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:

Insect Macro Fun!

Chris Lane / photography / / 4 Comments

Here are a few photos of some insects I took with my new Tamron 70-300mm f/4 Macro Lens. So far I am really liking this lens. It could be faster, like f/2.8 would be great, but was definitely within my budget too. Just to warn you, these images will get really up close and personal with some pretty nasty bugs. And if you don’t like spiders, don’t go all the way to the end!
And on to the photos. (and just to say, some of these are available for prints, if you were really into bugs!)
