Prikko, very nice page.
My day started at the crack of dawn. I managed to get 2 hours of kayaking in before 8am. By which time the sun was ideally high enough to go in search of insects to shoot. Here are 2 that graced me with their presence. It’s fantastic to see such beautiful familiar faces again. I created a mask to blend 3 photos together. Seeing as the photos were taken with the sun behind me, and all three insects were on the Purple Milk Vetch plants, they blended pretty well. It’s always a bonus to shoot native insects on native plants. In case you are wondering where the third insect is, it’s in the middle at the bottom. A newly emerged Lacewing. The wasp is 8-10mm, and the beetle is slightly smaller. The velvety grey blister beetle is my favourite blister beetle. It really does have the most velvety feel to the touch. For the tag, I did something a little different to the tag text, but it’s still multi coloured. Again, due to resizing, the page is degraded.
