Some cool hand net images:
elixir of the gods
Instead of coffee, I go straight for the Diet Coke first thing in the morning. Yes, I’m a bit of a DC junkie.
larvae at home
I found this small moth larvae feeding on Hemlock Water Dropwort. It spins a silken net under the flowers, which you can see in the left hand image. The larvae lives and feeds inside this net. As soon as I touched the net the larvae wriggled violently, dropping out of the net to the ground. So, I held my insect net under the next one, touched it and it fell into my net, where I was able to photograph it in all its glory – see the previous photograph.
