 Shakespeare in the back garden!!.

The acquisition of the new Nikon D850 has rekindled my interest in macro photography. Amazing what life and death struggles are going on in my   own garden!! Who needs to go to Africa??

CRAB SPIDER

The eponymous Crab Spider. Note the perfect colour match  of the chamelion like body stripe with my patio rose-coloured Mandevilla.

HEMARIS THYSBE

Almost the size of a small  hummingbird, I spotted this creature while visiting a friend’s garden tour. I have seen them before in southern Ontario, but this was the first I had seen in the Ottawa area.
