Observing insects climbing flowers is quite a harmless but fascinating pastime. In early June I had fun taking photos of this longhorn enjoy going up an aquiligea.

f14 1/80th sec spot metered natural early evening light + flash at 1/8th of its power cropped in Photofiltre

Thank you for the comments on the scarab beetle. I hope youíre going to like this longhorn and its climbing prowess.

Have a nice day despite the weather,

Jean-NoŽl

Watching insects is as fascinating as watching birds, and a lot easier to photographSmile This is a particular beauty.

Just flicking through, sorry to cut and run but I have been tied up for last two days on helping to prepare my Photographic Society's Annual Exhibition. Got lumbered with organising all the digital photo's. There are a lot.
Still just time to visit the favourites list before I'm off out again.
