Default Closeups from October 28 (FZ35+LC55)

Another lunch-time visit to the botanical garden:


#1 There are still lots of praying mantis - very unusual this year. I don't know why there are so many of them this year. They make great subject, however...




#2




#3 A few shots of a drone fly (honeybee look alike)




#4




#5




#6 Another mantis

Thanks Simon, you think the mantis LOOKS ugly, you should see what they do to their prey. I watched one catch a katydid almost as big as itself, and slowly devour it over a period of 30 minutes or so, after biting off its head. They do the same thing to the males after they mate.....

Thanks square one, yes they are also known as European hoverfly. About the size of a honeybee.
