A Yellow spotted ladybird on a tulip?
Or a phasmid?
Thanks for looking
Great shots! :thumbup: #1 is my choice,, never seen a yellow ladybug before. But what the heck is that other bug? A phasmid you called it?
Nice pictures of the fungus eating Halyzia sedecimguttata I like how it has purple pollen stuck to it. Mainiac I don't think this Ladybug is in the US.
The other insect, which you also did a wonderful job photographing, is known as a Stick Insect or Walking Stick.
Wow, ewww. Your photos are great, though! I like #1.
Thanks Maniac, it just turned up on a blackberry bush that we took some leaves for the phasmid to eat.
Thats great to know what it is digital flower. Its a Danish one, and i beleive they are some of the earliest insects to appear after winter here.
Here is another one
with a 100% crop of its head, just because i was suprised how good the resolution was through a cheapo second hand kenko 2x teleconverter.
Very nice TPE, I like how she has polen on her in #2, and #3. Were you using a macro lense with the tele converter? Very sharp pics either way.
very nice close-ups!
lol... #4 startled me... Here I am all happy looking a pretty little bug and then BAM!!!! LOL... 4 and 5 are of type a praying mantis right? It looks like one but then it doesn't. Never mind I see one of the other posts... a stick bug of sorts.
