Thanks Tim. It isone of theSphecid (or "regal wasps") wasps,called the Great Golden Digger Wasp.

Tim, was the butterfly picture you posted here taken in Florida or on your West Indian trip?
Penolta, it was taken in FL but it was taken at the University of Florida Natural History Museum butterlyfly "aviary." I know that most of the types they had were not native to Florida but I don't know for sure about this one.

This wasp must be another Sphecid wasp. In Sept I found a half a dozen of these things packing holes in the ground with grasshoppers and katydids in my brothers back yard. I was amazed that they could get aloft carrying another insect twice their size. It was the first time I had really needed autofocus on a macro lens as they just moved so quickly and when I went back to try for some more shots there were none to be found. Maybe next year when then eggs in those holes hatch.

Tim. the butterfly is a tropical relative of the Monarch - one of several species that mimic Heliconian butterflies. They occur in the West Indies, Central and South America. At least one of them (the "Tiger Mimic-Queen") is known to stray into Florida and Texas occasionally.

Great wasp photo, too. If you think that grasshopper is a load, you should see a tarantula hawk or a cicada killer haulingits prey!

There's been some awesome photos posted lads. Great work all of it. My 2007 was my first yearwith a DSLR in my hands. Here are my humble entries.


.

They may not be the best photos technically but I photograph things that mean something to me, and I am proud of them all. The last one in particular is something special,because near to where my feet stood when taking the picture my dad's ashes are spread . What a view eh?

This was tough. Not that my photos are great, but that so many of them bring back memories.

Here are the three I decided on.

Ronny, I remember the frog still from when you first posted it, it is a great choice. The winter landscape is beautiful.
