Hey, everyone! I've been busy with my new Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. Sure, this isn't about monster drawings, but some of our crawly friends certainly do look monstrous when viewed up close. For example:
   From top to bottom: The Black Ground Beetle(very common in New Jersey), a Stink Bug, a plump grub, and "Polydesmus angustus," the flat-backed millipede. These will all certainly be helpful and influential in my future monster drawings. I have a whole bunch of macro photos on my Flickr page, and this is only after owning the lens for about 3 weeks. I can't wait until the summer brings the REAL specimens. Yup, beetle and caterpillar season is almost upon us!

I'll get a huge fright if you do a spider photo.

I'm often seeing a lot of bugs and I dont even know what they are.

If you don't like spider photos, then do NOT look at the flickr sets. And by do NOT, I, of course, mean DO.
