Bugs + Insects
Images of West Coast insects and bug species
ETHICAL INSECT PHOTOGRAPHY: My insect and macro images are shot naturally as found, and are not manipulated nor staged. No animals are handled, moved or harmed for any of these shots. I do not use artificial droplets or spray bottles, so any water droplets are naturally occurring. Most of my insect images are photographed with a telemacro, from a distance. I feel it’s important to add this ethics disclaimer, given the frequent use of manipulative techniques in macro photography. If I stack images or otherwise stitch together, I will mention it in the caption. My full field ethics statement is here.
