Unlimited Bug / Insect Photography

Post by Pedorro » Tue Mar 05, 2013 11:41 pm

It's dead cold out....How bout lets start an inventory of the Suk's own insect and bug photogs.
Homegrown only no Googled stuff.
I know you all have some nice shots, start digging. No trouble if you duplicate one that's already here. Nice to have different views.

If you can ID the bug, great! If not somebody out there will correct you and you can go back and edit the shot with the correct bug name. That way we can search the site for our own bug pics. Deal?

OK I'll start...

Funny, we just had a Woolybug25 hatch here in Western NY.

Great idea for a thread, btw.

Grand River Spey Clave Paris Ontario.
You're from WNY, I'm guessing you we're there.
We've likely met. Ha ha. Likely was your hat!

Lighten up, dude. It's just a photo. It's just a joke.

It was in Canadian. Our X PM Trudeau made the most famous short speech of any head of state with it.
It's all good.
