Garden Dwellers

I love very much to join the Macro Monday 2 meme, but my macro lens is still at the service center, has been there for months now waiting for a spare part. Oh My God, i already missed it. These photos are not macro, but i beg you to allow me post them here. Ok ok, they are close-up, haha!

 This is a scary hirsute larva of a moth, who will care to touch it. Getting the lens closer to it is scary enough!

 a jumping spider with another spider or prey below it, i wonder what it really is.

 These individual hoya flowers are just about 1 cm in diameter. I am just trying to compare them as they are supposedly of different species, but other people say they are the same with just different colors or variations. The left is Hoya pubicalyx, while right is Hoya pubicalyx 'B;ack Dragon' now called Hoya pubicorolla ssp anthracina.

the same flowers at different angle.

  1. Wow, that spider picture is amazing. However I wouldn't like to get too close.

    1. Spiders are always only lovely in photos, only a few people can touch them. I get close just because i have the macro lens, otherwise i am scared too. Thanks for your visit.

  2. I love the caterpillar and the hoya blossoms. The shot of the spider is neat, but I just don't like spiders. :-)

    1. Hahaha, i am more scared of the hairy caterpillar than the spider. Those hairs get you in trouble if they touched your skin.

    1. Oh yes this flowers are of Hoya pubicalyx, H carnosa is a bit different. I have 3 carnosas too, pink, white and variegated leaves with pink flowers. I am hooked with it with around 70 species now in my collection.

  4. Gorgeous! I really enjoyed your "almost macro" photos. Close enough to show the detail and the beauty of the flowers, the larva, and the spider.
