p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Pants full of ants


The weather has been a bit unstable this week, but luckily held off enough to get out a few times. I had a couple of good sessions and one not so good... memorable, though

"There’s something about standing in the middle of a paddock with your pants full of angry green ants that will make a man do irrational things... Remember the image you conjured up a moment ago? Now remove the majority of clothes from the man and add in a pair of arms that seem to be possessed and trying to slap every body part all at the same time."

The rest of the story is at http://www.anthonytancredi.com/blog/ for anyone interested, otherwise, just the pics below!

Cheers,
Anthony


1) A small cluster of early morning sleepy blue banded bees





2) Female wandering percher (I think). I'm hopeless at dragonfly ID's!





3) Australian owlfly. Much healthier looking specimen than the last one I posted





4) Neon cuckoo bee at sunset. Met up with Mark at his field of dreams for a bee shoot. Awesome stuff!





5) Big longhorn... Not sure of ID





6) Killer green ant . This one was drinking drops of nectar (as seen in it's jaws) from these small milkweed flowers.

Fabulous story, mate! The longhorn is beautiful but the neon bee is the star of the show, IMO. Lovely work, Anthony.

Ha! , it looks like the Australian owlfly has had a struggle flying in a slight wind.. has finally managed to grip onto something and is kissing it in relief :P

a great series of photos Buddy and Kenj8246 is right the Neon bee is awsome, and the Killer green ant comes a very close 2nd for me

What a beautiful set! Love those banded and neon bees. Dragon is great, as is the owl fly. Wonderful work.

Nice set mate. NCB looks very good. Would like to see it up close, see what my cam is not picking up maybe, like half the DR.

The beetle may be a Monochamus but many longhorns are confusingly similar.

Thanks mate. This one was a little underexposed, so had to lift the shadows a little. Plenty of DR there, but may look a little flat overall because of it. I'll stick a high res up and send you a link to check out.

Thanks for the tip Harold! I came to the same conclusion when having a look... ie: Confused This might help me track it down though
