some captures from my garden
1

This hopper nymph landed on my pants leg. I haven't seen this one before.

I was sitting down taking photos of this spider when the hopper landed on my leg.

The colors were nice and clear. I must be in it's new skin.

I found a brown horned hopper

Brown Horned Treehopper - Pogonella minutus Family Membracidae

After this I sat on my walk stool and took some photos of my stingless bees feeding on the onion flowers.

It is a great source  of pollen for the bees.

With a long focal length lens, the easiest way to do this is by setting the focus manually then moving back and forth very slowly to get the bee in focus.  Focus peaking can help or you can use manual focus zoom but it is harder to find the bee that way.

after they land it is much easier.
