First Insects

As Winter is leaving, the first insects start to appear. Again it is very predictable which will be the first insects to be captured by my camera: flies and lady beetles. However this year, another insect landed on my deck before any others did: A beautiful Four Humped Stinkbug (Brochymena quadripustulata). It stayed there for a couple of days and then decided to take off to unknown destinies and adventures :).

That same day, I also found the first Ladybugs and flies. I am glad to see them returning and I am really looking forward to this new season of macro photography.
