Day 1: First day up north. It rained, the grill was broken, and our cabin’s water was leaking.

1: *had the flash on for this one* This is some species of Hawk/Spinx Moth, I’m not exactly sure which species in specific, though…
2: This species of beetle is called a Grapevine Hoplia, it is apparently becoming a problem around here, eating plants and produce used for food by many other species.
3: Rosy Maple Moth!

Took these in the evening.

I smiled so big when I realized what was going on here :D

I bet that butterfly is pissed off.

This is only the second time I have ever seen a pink grasshopper, and the first time I’ve ever gotten a photo of one. 

The pink color is caused by a recessive gene similar to the one that causes albinism.  It was hopping around on a hill at Curecanti National Recreation Area, June 2014.

"Flight of the Bumble Bee"

This was a very difficult image for me to capture. This was the fifth or sixth outting I attempted it, bees a quick and enigmatic, which makes their movement somewhat difficult for me to predict. However, after all these trips I began to notice patterns and let my focus run three steps ahead of the bee. The result speaks for itself. (at Roxhill, Seattle, Washington)
