Firebug (Pyrrhocoris apterus)
Above you can see a Firebug (Pyrrhocoris apterus) which I found on my way while wandering through my town. I like the patterns and colors of the Firebug and I guess the name fits very well to the appearance of this bug. I am little bit sad because I took several close-up images of the insect but this little friend was in hurry so that it was not easy.
I thought I would have one very nice close-up shot but at home I did notice on my computer that most photos were too blurry and the photo above is the only good one. This is a situation where I do think that I need a DSLR or SLR because I could focus subjects way faster than with a cheap digital camera, I guess. I do already save for a better camera but it will take some time. I want to dig deeper into the photography hobby, so that this is my plan for the future. Especially macro photography seems to be very interesting in my opinion.
Anyway, I am happy that I have now at least one photo of a Firebug, even if it´s not the best photo.
