Mostly subimagos (unless the plural is subimagoes).

It's probably wondering why you're not using a film camera, or a the the very least a proper digital camera.

Or maybe it's doing what our dog does and washing its face after a tasty snack to get the last morsels.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Went looking for Dingy Skippers yesterday - saw one disappear into undergrowth. Also saw 3 young stoat disappear into undergrowth with no pictures of either. It was with a little delight that I found a banded demoiselle (male) which was a first sighting for me on my local patch (Low Newton Junction NR). A lot of damsel activity in the sunshine as well.

One wanders into our garden occasionally. I have yet to see a female this year (at the riverside), which is unusual.

Two Hoverflies New to Me

My confidence in naming these is limited. Both were photographed in my garden by natural light at f9 or f10.

The first one looks very much like a Volucella to me, in which case I think it is a male V. bombylans. The last image has received a little extra sharpening. I photographed it two weeks ago.[Edit] I have had this verified and the white tail makes it var plumata. [Edit ends].

The last image is of a fly which landed several time but took to hovering after I got this image. I am even less sure of this one but am calling it Ceilosa illustrata.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, hand-held.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Pegomya sp. Leaf Miner of Sorrel

My wife gave me some portions of leaf off our Sorrel Rumex acetosa plants. On them were groups of white eggs grouped parallel and close-packed.

On examining the plants, I found mines, one with a larva in it. I had to extract the larva form its home to get an kind of image at all. I have tried to make these images but without much success.

The species are difficult to identify but the adult looks like this:

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...a_solennis.jpg

For the mines I used the Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro. For the eggs and larva close-ups I added a x2TC and a Raynox MSN-202. Twin or triple TTL flash. Olympus EM-1.

Two Blues

These two male common Blue Damselflies seemed comfortable with sharing the one perch, one or the other flying off briefly and then returning.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/200 at f9, sunlight, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye. I donít think the pair were shot for stereo, there being another image between them in the sequence, but they function.

Harold

Alf,

An excellent set.

I'm fairly sure the bug is a mirid.
