7/20/12 Hogback Overlook

 These trails are mostly fairly dense woods ( but quiet and peaceful) with the only view coming at the overlook.

The Mountain Road section is overgrown woods road but open and sunny and there were lots of insects

Three shots of this one that stayed put long enough for several shots

I don't know the names of these

But think this is a Cicada

      A nice hike 3  3/4 hours                         


  1. #7 looks like a Black and Yellow Longhorn Beetle. You sure do see a lot of "wildlife" on your hikes.

  2. You always have the best insect photos! How do you catch them standing still? I can never seem to do that.

  3. Thanks for the ID John- sometimes we do- depending ,often, on the weather.

    Thanks Linda- patience and luck

  4. John, I always admire your macro-photos, but these insect shots are spectacular!

  5. Thanks for your kind comments Cindy- sometimes we get lucky and conditions are right and the little buggers sit still long enough.
