He wasn't as well hidden as he thought once daylight arrived

Isn't the Common Jester, so not sure if it is either Neptis hordonia or Parathyma nefte

I have very fond memories of the all male Lamma BBQs. The rough youth who used to hold them had a pony-tail and mad staring brown eyes: The more he drunk, the bigger the brown eye became. Oh happy days. I would love some news of him. Or news on any more all male cook offs?

Well at least I now know what the small throbbing object protruding from the shadows near my house was last night.
Nothing hath such heartfelt sadness as a stalker unnoticed :coffee:

Hey
Unfortunatly my low budget digital camera coupled with my low budget camera skills =low,low budget results.
Did you get to see the two fleshy "zappers" that the common mime butterfly has hidden in between his head and "false head".They kinda shot them out when touched.The butterfly of this species(Chilasa Clytia,papilionidae) is mimicking the species of Danaidae(which are inedible due to poisons from their host plants).The papilionidae(which include all the swallowtails) are generally tasty for birds due to their food plants which are not high in poisons.
Guy your photos are really damn good.You ever attempted any of the little jumping spiders,i have tried but their small size just spins my cameras focus right out.When checked out close up some of those spiders are really colourful and stunning.Thanks for putting your photos up on these forums by the way.



Peace

Jumping spiders in mid-jump hurtling through the air coming right up!

Guy surely can't resist a a challenge like that! 8)

Shooting his award-winning hornets in mid-flight was easy in comparison to these tiny jumping spiders... :wink:
