unusual plants, insects, ...what have you seen?

Another bug muncher, he's nervously watching the dog who does not like him one bit.

For anyone who likes creepy crawlies, you need to checkout the Nature topic in the Photography Forum. Anguid is an absolute genius at capturing beautiful shots of insects.smile.png

What a coincidence I saw this thread. I was looking at the garden yesterday afternoon and saw the biggest butterfly I've ever seen. It moved like a hummingbird but was the size of a swallow. It danced over the flowers for a long time then flew off. My wife didn't know the name. A quick google found an image, but still no name.

But then, what's in a name? as the poem goes.

Not unusual, but our bees were swarming again this evening, so snapped this shot. Unfortunately there was not enough light to freeze their movement.

The butterfly is called Common Birdwing (Troides helena)

Going through my photos today and came across this pic of a tree ant's nest.

That sometimes happens with Google plus but I don't know why. So when it happens to me I go to the underlying Picasa page and I can always copy the link from there.

Lord have mercy at these nasty critters. They look better after getting fried with a blow torch.

This one!

Obviously a caterpillar of some sort.

The white "threads are feather like and blow in the breeze!

Actually a beautiful little critter!

Seems to only eat my palms.

I found photos of one on Google, but no information at all, not even a name.

Does anyone know anything about it?

I like this beacuse the flowers change colour as they age.

Also has a very sweet heady smell.
