A few items from my most recent outing: a cuckoo wasp (genus Parnopes), an Acmon Blue (Icaricia acmon), and a thick-headed fly (genus Physocephala).

Very nice pictures. I especially like the first and second one.

Thanks! Here are a few from earlier in the summer. I'm glad to see a little interest on here for Lepidoptera.

Ichneumon wasp
Taken in Muskoka in Canada a few years ago. Fortunately it is a parasitic wasp that wicked looking back end is an ovipositor

On the 16th of this month I snapped some caterpillars and a pupa. I hoped to see butterflies emerge but nature had other plans - Birds got the juicy grubs and ants got into the pupa and had a meal! :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Anyway, here are the pics.

I'm not sure where exactly I can post these without "braking" some rules - it's 50/50 :D!

Thanks Click! But be careful - they are taken with the same lens that I use for birds (I don't like to care the extra weight of my 105mm macro).
