A Male Midge (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

The midge is one of the smallest creatures I can shoot hand-held. That marvelous mane of bristling hair reminds me of some theater costumes. Midges for the most part are an annoyance, collecting in clouds you don’t see until it’s too late. Once you find some bushes that they like you can revisit those bushes and find them in pairs or alone. They are seldom disturbed by the camera or the flash.
