Kaws One First Edition Art Collection Photo Book 2001 Krusty The Clown Rare Used

Bring out your wildlife photos (good ones, mind you); I can never have enough of them on hand.

Today have another slew of great insect photos, with documentation, by Mark Sturtevant. His notes are indented.

Here are yet more pictures of insects taken over the previous summer.

The picture of the female is one of my favorite pictures from last summer. It is especially recommended that people embiggen this one, for she is a creature of great ethereal beauty.

 

 

Next is a mating pair of six-spotted tiger beetles (Cicindella sexguttata), by far the most common of our local species of these predatory beetles. One can see here that males have slightly longer mandibles, and that their added length assists them during mating.

Next we move on to Odonates. The first two are male and female vFigurine mini Pixi tintin vol 747 pour sydney proche du neuf boite Certificat (Argia fumipennis). The male is young. As he matures, he will gradually turn a violet color as shown in the linked picture.

Moving on to dragonflies, the last three pictures are from the large family of ‘skimmers’ (Libellulidae). The first is a young male (Libellula pulchella). They will develop white markings on their wings as they age.

The second dragonfly is a female (Libellula semifasciata), and seeing it was a big surprise since I thought their range did not extend as far north as where I lived. It wanted to perch up high so the views were fore-shortened, unfortunately. So the picture is actually several different pictures that were taken at different focal points and then blended together by hand.

 

Finally, we have a male Eastern amberwing (Perithemis tenera). The amberwing is one of our smallest dragonflies, with a body barely an inch long

Sunday: Hili dialogue

It’s Sunday, June 2, 2019, and celebrating a kind of fudge with nuts and marshmallow (also a flavor of ice cream). It’s also International Sex Workers Day, though the Wikipedia entry is under

On June 2, 455, the Vandals began their sack of Rome, plundering the city for two weeks. There is controversy about the extent of murder and damage that occurred, although there’s no doubt about the extensive looting.  On this day in 1098, the Crusaders of the First Crusade entered Antioch on their way to the Holy Land.  On June 2, 1692, the first person tried for witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts, Bridget Bishop, was found guilty; she was hanged 8 days later.  Here’s a photo I took of her memorial when I was recently in Salem
