This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Creepy.
The prompt got me thinking about creepy crawlies, a term for insects and other invertebrates used by people who dislike or are afraid of them.
A portrait of a Horsefly. I find its eyes interesting although I dislike getting bitten by one. I cropped the photo square and added a heavy vignette to focus attention on the eyes.
A Zebra Spider. Another species some people find creepy. It’s a small jumping spider, the jumping ability can add to the creepiness of it. It’s a common species in the northern hemisphere, this one was photographed in Cheshire, England but I have seen plenty of them in this part of Ontario, Canada. Once again I cropped the photo square and added a heavy vignette to focus attention on the spider.
Monochrome Monday was taken on the way home after photographing a sunrise at the local bay.
The low sun was illuminating the patches of mist amongst the trees and bushes in a hay field so I stopped and took some shots. I thought that the layers created by the mist between the trees and bushes would make an interesting monochrome conversion.

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Fruits.
Some red berries in the autumn. I was surprised that a bird or mammal species hadn’t eaten them.
Also on some fallen tree remains.
