Summer Break

I thought that I should take advantage of the inclement weather of recent days to get into posting a blog or two. The break over Xmas/new year (hope you all had fun) was quite productive photographically and, with photographer Petra Sing on visit from Europe (pictured below), I was able to snap many Gigs of material.

The following shots are a collection on insects, arachnids, reptiles, and fungal forms.

These were taken at a number of areas over the holiday break.

I hope you enjoy this eclectic mix of summer pics, with more to come as I get to process them.


  1. Hi David,

    Great close-ups of interesting insects, bugs, critters, etc.
    The one wearing the "knee pads" (looks like an insect "skate-boarder") is a type of Longicorn Beetle.

    The yellow creature with hair all over its body (4th of the "bug" photos) really interests me, as I have twice seen similar creatures, in different states of development. But I have no idea what they become in mature stage.

    You are a good observer - to find these interesting creatures. It is a great talent. Keep it up.



  2. Thanks for the praise Denis,and your knowledge as a naturalist in ID'ing what I find is always welcome and appriciated.
