that's a really nice photo of the orb spider, bowser. the dark background really highlights the spider and the web.

dirt claud, the spotting scope seems like a great way to view them. it's tricky with a macro lens since you have to get so close to them.

I saw this last week.




I remembered seeing one during a summer we lived in a botanical garden near St. Louis when I would have been 7 or 8 years old. I remembered the name Velvet Ant and the caution my Dad advised. This one wouldn't sit still for my camera.

The 'Velvet Ant' is actually a wasp whose sting has been characterized often as 'excruciating'.
Don't say I didn't warn you.

No, but I was sitting on a rock at about 13K above base camp in Bogustan
when a hummingbird suddenly appeared and hovered right at my boot, drawn
by my flashy red laces, I guessed. I was mesmerized for seconds until I realized,

"THERE AREN'T ANY HUMMINGBIRDS ON THIS CONTINENT!"

Holy crap! It was huge and it had fallen in love with my foot! <cue little girl screams>

Dragonflies are way cool, too bad they are hard to look at in detail usually, since they are often flying around, like butterflies.

Tho' they are more of a superorganism than an 'insect', here's one of my queens. Any other beeks out there?

"Take me to yer leader!"



Dood was hanging out in a potted plant by the front door. I think he had
the wrong address cause when I told the wife some dood wanted her it wasn't
a gud scene. I thought I was gonna have to call PETA or something.





Some people are born poseurs, n'est ce pas?
