Hi!

Finally the weather was good enough to try find some critters. Shortly after leaving home I saw my first butterfly of the year, so I knew that I spring is finally arrived :-)
It was quite windy, and the sun soon dissapeared behind clouds, but still I found some insects which werent too shy and posed for me :G
All comments apprecieated! :-)

1. Some kind a fly


2. Another fly


3. Sap beetle (Glisorchilus sp.)


4. Some kind a larvae. There were very many of them - crawling on spruce stumps. Maybee someone knows what are they?


5. The same larvae, trying to hide from me :G


6. Bark beetle (Scolytidae)


P.S. - Some of images looks kind a soft... I don't know why. Maybee because of resizing...

Really nice pics CerambyX

Hopefully spring comes to Finland soon. Atleast it´s near allready!

I liked numbers 2, 3 and 6 best. Did you use macro lens taking these?

I don´t know if it´s my connection but some of the pics didn´t load... :sad:

#2 in my opinion is the best of the group with #3 close behind. Nice job.

Thanks for your comment! Which pictures you couldn't see?

I was using old russian binocular (named as "MBS-10") lens. :-)

Now I can see all of them. Maybe it was my connection.

Very nice shots. I have heard of using simple magnifying glass or binocular lens for macros. Your shots prove that can be done quite successfully.
