A familiar, colorful leaf hopper from this morning, doing an unexpected bit of yoga, or perhaps its been practicing at the ballet bar.

Such movements are generally labeled "cleaning," but I've never observed a leaf hopper doing it, and the hind leg, normally almost invisible below the wings, is both longer and more flexible that I would have guessed.

Dug back into older image files again for seconds and unused images, plus shamelessly reposting images that were on PF three or more year ago.

Thank you. Enough new Pentaxians have joined over the past three years that my repeat images won't seem stale to everyone.

Because you liked that one, here's another, and it's a deep crop because the fly was small and I was very hesitant to move closer lest it leave or turn its back on me.

I should wait politely for someone else to post something, but so long as this contest is going, I want to be sure to make my self-imposed daily quota.

I think I've made my daily quota, so following this post, I'm off line for a while.

Two days since my last post on this thread. Let me try to stir interest.
Gypsy moth, male, the only good one is a dead one. 11 file stack, 180mm f4 Voigtlander + Raynox 150. These &^%#** invaders are flying, mating, and laying eggs almost everywhere we walk with Tralee. I scrape the females and egg cases off the trees whenever possible. One group of immigrants I would gladly see deported.
