    Re: Birds,bugs etc,around us!!

    Nice photos - the last series shows a Ladybird beetle larva pupating and the moth in the previous series is a tiger moth (a generic name for moths of the family Arctidae). Always seems odd to think that some people are having autumn now, just as we start spring

    Re: Birds,bugs etc,around us!!

    Thank you Chris!!My entomology is a bit rusty and I really was not sure about the last pictures, if it was really a ladybird !!Half looked like one and the front not!!I pictured a few ladybirds about a month ago on the same pecan tree!!
    The moth was on my bedroom window yesterday morning,so I went out and took her picture!!Not a really big one!!This year I have not seen the really big ones(the size of a bat)(or my open hand)which are different browns in colour!!
    We are having cold mornings,still no frost,but soon!!Lovely sunny days with temperatures going to the 23 celsius!!I enjoy walking around in company of the two pups and the cat too sometimes!!They must think I am a crazy old chap looking up the trees and into the leaves with a camera hanging from my neck!!!
    We have the ticketts for our short holiday(with my wife) to Miami,leaving on the 12th,but this flue thing is looking bad!!I bought and will get there a bigger zoom (50-500) and a macro dedicated flash(two heads) and a couple of cameras with 20x zoom for grandchildren!!(And some stuff for knifemaking too)Maybe I find some more white coral for my handles!!(on the beach!!)
    So soon you will all have a vacation and rest from this thread!!!
    Thank you again for your endurance looking at this thread that started very humbly!!You have all been very kind in your comments!!
    Best regards:
    Albert
