Alphabet Photography Project | I is for…


This has been an obvious choice for me really! My three love their 6 legged friends.. and yes, I mean friends. This year we have managed to keep them in the garden but previously we’ve had woodlice in a small tank in the living room, we’ve tried to create an ant farm and a wormery, and we’ve often had various caterpillars living in pots or the butterfly net.

I used to dislike anything remotely creepy and crawly but over the last couple of years I have grown to see the beauty in (some of) them and I now enjoy photographing all sorts of insect to see them in detail.

    Those are fabulous photos. I try to limit the number of creepy crawlies that actually make it into the house, although we currently have an ant farm and caterpillars that will soon be butterflies! #Alphabetphoto

    Cockchafer? Only seen squashed ones this year. Insects are so interesting and varied. Lovely close ups. I could sadly spend all day just photographing bugs! #AlphabetPhoto

    Awesome Jo I love both! You’re so right too, it really had to be insect. That first one especially is amazing. Managed to get a couple of grasshoppers this week but they’re not chunky enough – if that makes sense! Thank you so much for sharing with #alphabetphoto

    Those are some nice looking insects! We don’t get a lot of ladybirds here in Shetland, unfortunately, although I did find a Harlequin crawling across my ceiling a few winters ago. My photo of it ended up on the BBC as it was the most northerly spotting of one, ever!
