I like the overall look of these, almost painterly, sort of oriental look to me. sort of have a silk screen look and have a mood rather than a clinical look if that makes sense.View attachment 864384 View attachment 864385 View attachment 864386 View attachment 864387 View attachment 864388 View attachment 864389 View attachment 864390 View attachment 864391 View attachment 864392 View attachment 864393 View attachment 864394 View attachment 864395 View attachment 864396 View attachment 864397 View attachment 864398
Do you have a basement? We do, and just earlier this week we found what we call a "demon cricket." On first glance, they look like big fat spiders, and on second glance, they are just really ugly crickets. Mrs Darmok hates them, my youngest daughter catches them, thinks they are cute, and feeds them peanuts.The 2021 Insect Season is officially open in France. This is a European Fly-Mimicking kitchen butterfly, very rare and very colourful. First thing I have seen this year.
More importantly, I have proved to myself that the P45-175 with double stacked Raynoxes (250 + 150) can work. It will be mightily interesting to see what this combo will do in good natural light in the spring. I am off to find a rare fly-mimicking spider next. Stand by to be bored later in the week.
It really IS the first insect I have seen, too
