Head or Facial Features

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Heads or Facial Features.

One of the first photos that came to mind when I read the prompt was the colourful eyes of a Horse Fly. When I was checking out the Horse Fly portrait in my image library I scrolled past portraits of some Bison and thought the size disparity would make an interesting post.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Creepy

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.

Horsefly Eyes

The new Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Eyes.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of this portrait of a Horsefly with colourful eyes photographed in Cheshire, England.
