Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Common Blue Female on Lavender

I often see a blue butterfly in my garden on sunny spring and summer days. It is always a Holly Blue. Only once (2 years ago?) had I seen a different species. Yesterday was the second time. The orange spots told me that it was different.

The butterfly was on lavender which was a straggly growth amongst tall grass, etc., making close approach liable to put it to flight. (I fitted the TC to gain magnification). So I was reliant on the butterfly to present itself photogenically. I was not content with the lateral views but, as expected, getting closer and at the right angle put it to flight and I never saw it again.

The lateral views each have their good points but, with more than usual processing, they are only good enough to show what the insect looked like.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9, hand-held.

Harold

Dronefly on Tomato

Insects have been very scarce in the recent hot, dry weather. This hoverfly was one of the very few I have seen. If the tomato had been red I don't think I would have bothered.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9, hand-held.

Meadow Brown Butterfly on Buddleia

There was only the one individual. At first glance, this brown butterfly offers limited potential for images. I spent some time with this one and hope I have shown that it was worthwhile.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f8, hand-held.

The shadows have been digitally moderated in some images. Even so, the veins of the wings show up quite differently, depending on the direction of the light.

Note how the sunlight filtering through foliage gives a false impression of the wing markings in the seventh image.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Sphaerophoria Hoverflies on Goldenrod

These are very small, yellow and black hoverflies. The abdomen of the males in elongated and parallel sided, with genitalia hooked beneath the tail end. The females (third image) have a more typically-shaped abdomen, narrowing to a pointed tip.

Males are identifiable to species only by examining the genitalia and females are not recognisable beyond the genus.

The stereo is crosseye and uncropped.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9, 10 or 11, hand-held.

Harold

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Here's a couple of mine from a recent stroll round our local unofficial nature reserve.
Photographically not as good a many on here, but some confirmation of IDs would be much appreciated.

Tenthredo notha Sawfly ???

Eristalis interruptus ??? lousy photo, just for the ID, 2 more equally bad ones from differing viewpoints if you follow the link.

Haven't got the foggiest, but quite small as you can see;

And the last pair, the white plastic stuff is 3A mains flex, just for scale.

The last two were taken on a moth night as grab shots along with dozens of others, just to record what we found.

Bill,

The first is Tenthredo but seems to have too many complete yellow bands for notha and it seems a bit too chunky. The last is a Frog Hopper (plant hopper).

Thanks Harold, was hoping you would spot the photos.
This was another photo taken on a different day, but I wasn't sure if it was the same type of beastie; my local expert on the reserve though it was likely Tenthredo arcuata, but possibly T notha. I don't have either the experience or reference material to work it out
( nor do I have any good enough photos )
