Wings on this butterfly are badly tattered. It doesn't stand out well against the busy background.

Aren't you glad you spotted it before you sat down? . One of those small creatures that make you glad to be a big creature. Can't contribute much to this thread at the moment, temp outside this morning was about 9F (~ -13C). Except for things living in the cellar, and mostly what I see are a few spiders, there are essentially no active arthropods in the area.

You bet! And as for being glad that you are bigger than it-that's a myth . One of those creatures that cause you to throw out all logic and reason, and I occasionally suffer from that, especially when it crawls over my toes under the table . There are members of my congregation that reacts in one of 2 ways when they come across this critter. Get up on the highest spot in the area, basically any chair or cupboard :lol. Or run out of the house And some will not even look at a picture of the thing, for fear of it jumping off the screen
-13Degrees C? Phew. It's sizzling around here, 37 Degrees C.

Another batch


Any idea what this critter is-rather strange








Big ant

Came across this butterfly image from four years back when looking for something else. Background on this is not so great.

Well, I'm glad I started this thread then. Future is good. Children need to know what insects were around when we are all dead and gone, eh.

I've had macro tubes for a few years, they are fun. Near end of summer this past ( 2018 ) and old friend of my dad's gave me some Nikon lenses. Straight to Ebay for an adapter later lol. One of them is a near mint 90mm macro.

First time using an actual macro lens was a learning afternoon, that's for sure

I came across this image of a big wasp when looking through the images from Hawaii. I probably posted it more than five years ago.
