If it were not for all of you people on here, I probably wouldn't be trying to take pictures of nearly *everything* I see! I spotted this guy, his wing pattern caught my eye so I had to snap a dozen pictures so I could post a couple here!

Thanks, Cirsium!

I checked the link and it looks right to me. Now that little guy has a name.

...One question: Why didn't you provide a link for the Rough-celled Amoebicon (Ameobicus largenous)? I'd have liked to check it out too!

Newly discovered species - nothing out there on the net yet.

Now, I'd have been *really* impressed if you had created a website or two to link to your "newly discovered species"!



(Like any of us have that kind of time on their hands--not even me. ...My summer vacation is coming to a close...but I still have a bit more time to get things done.)

A pair of gray hairstreaks spent the whole morning dining on a mint flower in a pot on the deck. They didn't mind me getting up close at all. They were facinating to watch.

How wonderful that they don't fly off so you can not only watch but take pictures. I especially like the second one.
