Day 163 of 365 7-13-14
Not a lot happening at the meadow this morning on my first run through. Saw several very small critters one of which I’ll post tonight. Terrible shot at best, but the colors were pretty standout. It was on my rearview mirror when I spied it, and that’s what made it appear that it had a million legs going in all directions.

Saw several of the old standbys on the QAL, but by and large, there wasn’t much going on critter wise.

#1…Eastern Dark Swallowtail
For some reason I thought it would be neat to shoot across the plane of its wing. Ah…I remember now why…it was the only shot I got before it took off.

#2…Insect Casing Cast Off Under Leaf

#3…Unknown Insect on Mirror

#4…Dead Ladybug Walking
This poor creature was infected by scores of parasites on the underside of it's body. It was still moving when I shot this, but doubt that it had much longer to live.

#5…Leafhopper

#6…Colorful Spider Egg Sac
Looks like a Spider Xmas Ornament or something.

Another interesting & diverse set today George.
I really like the strange look of the Insect Casing Cast Off Under Leaf, Eastern Dark Swallowtail, colorful Leafhopper and Colorful Spider Egg Sac shots.

Nice set George. I've never seen a pink moth before. My daughter would love seeing one.

I bet if you left the porch light on for a good while, and then checked, you would find all kinds of interesting moths and other night time insects to shoot.

Getting up at 5:00 AM kinda discourages me from doing so George.
