Hey folks! I started a new project!
A little over a year ago, I shot this picture of a dragonfly. Actually - I got some notoriety and sold a copy at the Scarab Club in Detroit. I was a pretty cool show - If you are unfamiliar with the Scarab Club, you should check the out: http://www.scarabclub.org
But back to the project.
I have an affinity for animals large or small, but I also have a "disaffinity" for things that can bite or sting and inject me with poison. That being said, I wanted this series to be a trial for me as well as visually interesting for you. All these guys are alive. Except for the spider. But it wasn't my fault. I didn't know spiders couldn't survive cold temperatures.... my bad.
The rest of them, though, are just fine. They spent a few minutes in the fridge to slow them down then were released after their photo shoot.
The beetle was my favorite. He reminded me of a dim-witted sidekick in a cartoon series.
If you would like to see the rest of the series or if you would like to pick up a print, check out the gallery here. An be sure to check it occasionally - this is an ongoing project after all.
