Gymnopus dryophilus: Not as interesting as it looks

Re: Willow Emerald Damselflies.

Dave,

An excellent set.

They seem to prefer permanent water and are the last of the genus to emerge.

Definitely a Darter Sympetrum species. Probably an immature male of the Common Darter S. striolatum.

Nice image.

Damsels In My Garden

This is where I do most of my insect macros.

In the first four images I have framed the insects so that they are easy to see.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Mark, It s Male and Female Blue Hawker aka Southern Hawker.

Emperors don't have those broad (ante humeral) yellow stripes on the thorax or the "nail" on abdomen segment 2.

Nice images.

A Darter, an Obelisk and a Conquest

This session was at the same spot where, two weeks earlier, I photographed a Ruddy Darter resting on foliage. It could be the same male. I seemed worth adding...

Re: Bee-Fly

Definitely a Hummingbird Hawk-moth.

Beeflies are around for a short season in the spring whereas the moths only appear in summer.

The beefly tongue is not nearly as long and is held out...

Re: Fancy a quick tickle?

The second image shows an Aphidius wasp laying an egg. Something I have never seen.

"Impregnating " is still appropriate, as mummies will result.

Excellent images.

Re: 60mm Macro

I do all my flash (fill) macro in Manual Mode. Your flash duration is your exposure not your shutter speed.

Use the highest shutter speed to prevent ghosting from daylight. If you want to use low...

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Thanks, Mark.

Re: Ectemnius Cephalotes

Lovely images but the lack of a yellow stripe across the back of the thorax and the striping along the legs, makes me doubt that it is cephalotes. Some of the species are very difficult to separate....
