Your photos have made me look at insects differently than I ever have before. I catch myself observing them more closely when they cross my path. Yours is one of my favorite blogs to visit each day.

@SharonPleasants: Oh Sharon, that is one of the most pleasing reactions possible to what I (or anyone) does, whether they be a photographer, artist, performer, writer or politician. I can retire happy now!!! (Actually I won't, because there are still too many to convert). You have made my day. Cheers, John.
