SUMMER AFTERNOON WITH SPIDERS AND INSECTS

in Fascinating Insects7 months ago

On the 12th of June 2021, I spent the whole afternoon swimming, snorkeling, walking, and photographing along the stretch of coastline three or four kilometers from the village of Liznjan, more or less seven kilometers from where I live.

In this post, you'll see the insects and spiders that I encountered on the coast meadows back then in 2021.

Only one seed was still inside.

Can't tell you the exact species, but I'm pretty sure that this is a larva of some moth from the Geometridae family.

AND THAT'S IT. AS ALWAYS IN THESE POSTS ON HIVE, THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE MY WORK - THE END.

Sort:  

Oh, that transparent iridescence on the wings of the Kleidocerys resedae! The Melitaea didyma butterfly is stunning! Libelloides macaronius owlfly, what a name, owlfly! :))

🙂Yes, sounds like the name of some Superhero. I Learned that name only today while writing the post.

Fascinating shots indeed but nothing for arachnophobes :D
