What kind of insect is this?
Posted By: gnodde, 08-11-2010, 12:10 PM

I found this insect on a plant. My backyard is in a village in the countryside, and there is some water in the proximity.
I searched in books and on the internet, but I can't find out what this insect is.
Does anybody know?

Rense: thanks for the link.
It's a little strange how things work-out: because of photography, and especially macro's, I have become interested in insects, and begin to learn about these animals. Very interesting stuff!

I became interested in insects when I was around 11-12 years old. A very young person has much better eyes than an older person, and I can no longer focus well on very small things. I remember being able to look at my finger print patterns and marveling at the intricacy. I don't have that ability now, perhaps with a magnifier, of course. Well, how often do you reach for a magnifier in every day life? Macro photography, however, brings the realm of very small things into the sphere of every day existence if executed well, as Jan illustrates. I don't understand Jan's methods (macro tubes, I have no idea what this is), however I suppose he was using a manual focus Pentax macro lens.
