Speaking of moths at today’s meeting, here’s a photo I took of the largest moth I’ve ever seen (although I haven’t seen nearly as many moths as most of you, I’m sure). Its abdomen was as thick as my thumb. It was relaxing on the bark of a tree beside my apartment’s swimming pool, where it did a fabulous job …
Last fall I took this photo of an ant doing I-don’t-know-what. It would appear the pupa needed to be relocated, and by using ant logic they decided to carry it across the patio table.
Just now, while googling “ant life cycle” in search of a clearer image of these creatures, I came across this photo on www.alexanderwild.com. Nice work!
I found this guy in my bathroom. Sorry for the photo quality, it was taken on a cellphone through an acrylic macro lens that doesn’t fit properly. Any ideas on the identity of this uninvited guest? Some kind of dermaptera?
