A bumper upload after my previous paltry effort (for me). This is a celebration of the Bumper Bugfest Summer of 2013, so good that I even managed to get a butterfly!

V1 shows a Burnet moth newly emerged from its cocoon and images of the moths actually emerging are found in V2 and 6. Details of this process can be found here:-

http://www.bonnyfieldlnr.org/burnetmoth.html

The rest are an assortment of creatures taken in Newcastle in my mother-in-law's garden (the Hoverflies and the spider) and Chesterfield. I would love the have an I/D for the beasties in versions 9, 11 & 17.

I have lots more bug images from this Summer but for your sake confined my post to a mere 17. I hope that you enjoy at least some of them.

A stunning set of macro shots! I don't know why you say you can't do them? For me its v3 that has the real "WOW!" factor.

I wouldn't normally give a User Award as it could be construed as nepotistic, but these are so good especially my favourite that for once a rule is there to be broken.

The butterflies 4 & 13 are beautiful - are they ringlets?
V8 and V9 appeal to me for compositional reasons.

A bugfest indeed, Lynne, and a pleasure to view them all. V15 is my favourite.
Funny the things you never forget. When I lived in the New Forest and first encountered these white cocoons with black insects coming out of them, I thought it was really strangeTongue.

Cracking shot, this is actually a 5 spot Burnet (not sure which one) and they are not that common.

Lovely shots. 9 and 17 are both Longhorn Beetles (Strangalia maculate). Loves Dog rose pollen. Its larvae lives in rotting tree stumps and trunks.
