Bugs that Bug Me

I enjoy taking pictures of insects, but that hobby comes with a little bit of risk.  If you go in the tall grasses you are likely to run into ticks, chiggers, and mosquitoes.


But deer flies are the worst.  Especially if they bring a few dozen of their close friends.

I had hoped to take photos of butterflies at a location I found them last year, Popple Lake near Little Falls, MN.

This was a butterfly I saw there last year.


We have extirpated this butterfly from Iowa, but it is still found in Minnesota.  It may be found where I found them last year, but the flies chased me away.  Twice.
