They make the world go round.

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.
