I am glad to see the insect pictures have returned! I know I am at the right place this week.

Training Hearts said...

I'm not much into insects but this is a neat picture!

Mags said...

So...I'm even more in awe of you now because this past weekend my niece and I spent the day catching butterflies. And moths. And flies. And anything with wings.

And, it's not easy, even with a big honkin' net! You must be some kind of insect charmer to be able to get so close...or, you have a very good zoom lens.

Either way, I love your pics. But I tell you that each week...

Happy WW!!

Nicki Mann said...

What a pretty bug! What is it?

anyhowblogs said...

Hmm... Looks pretty on picture but I don't think I would like to get that close to it in real life. Great shot anyway.

jams o donnell said...

FatBlokeThin said...

mousey said...

mama k said...

Cool shots! Those are some pretty bugs. :)

Happy 4th and Happy WW!

Chris said...

Wow, I've never seen anything like this in my garden-how do you spot them?

Ben Clapton said...

Great pics, what a vivid colour. Black and red... does this make it an emo fly?

jams o donnell said...

Thanks all.

Ewbl ah yes Mothman II the sequel where London Bridge falls down!

Chris, this one was taken at Cranham March. It was a good find while the not wife and me were on a stroll

Siani said...

Lovely shots - I've always wondered what those moths were called. Liberty, of course, couldn't care less what they're called - she just likes eating them!

Qtpies7 said...

That is stunning!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks. Ah the kitties have to be careful. They are very toxic thankks to what their caterpillars feed on
