Nice image , Peter.

This species is listed under Strangalia in some popular guide books.

Thanks Harold. The yellow and black defence colours are quite common and I guess there are many similar longhorn sp. It seemed to be a good fit.

Happy for you to show us some of your macro work again.

One of my favourites. A perfect specimen. Usually torn or scratched by the blackthorn, but perhaps you get up earlier than I do.

Seeing the first is always the issue, and then you see lots. But I know it is summer... thanks for the thought.

Finding a nice specimen was the easy part. The photo was taken at a SSSI, it's a suspended bog. If you don't know where you're walking you could fall through into the water below. I was walked in by a warden and told to leave the same way.

A couple of Ruddy darters taken with the E5 and 50-200mm. A good combination and a lovely dragonfly, such a stunning red.

A reminder of the hot summer of 2014, this chap and his friends used our garden as a drinking spot.



Thanks for looking and a Happy Christmas to all.

Brown Butterfly.



Now I don't have to caption for editors I don't bother identifying some of the species I photograph.

You rebel you!.. Nice picture of an ooh-mebumbum butterfly. The only legless adult butterfly, food plant is a type of cactus sp.

Happy new year.

There's only one species of cactus native to Ontario and that's only found along the southern edge of the province so I don't think it's that.

Doing some googling it looks like a Pearl Crescent.

On first sight it looked like a fritillary but Google says it is from the Nymphalidae family so fits alongside the tortoiseshells, monarchs and admirals.

I didn't say what a lovely butterfly it was in my rush to make a joke. And apparently quite common and also very variable in pattern with Aster as a food plant.

I have never been to Canada or the US so I enjoy seeing the local species. Keep them coming. Named or not.

Here you go, an unnamed hairy North American caterpillar.



No longer bothering about keeping editors happy, not only do I not bother identifying them but I don't bother with a tripod or flash so all hand held in available light.

A Blue butterfly, I'm not sure which one though.
