A Bug in the Moss

Post by Walter Piorkowski »

Image


Sony NEX 5N
Sony 30mm Macro at f/22
Existing light early evening.
Image cropped.

I don't post on this portion of the image galleries much, doing most of my work under the microscope, but I wanted to provide this image as a guide to the images I am posting on the "Photography Through the Microscope" side under "Feather Like Antennae"
This cooperative insect had its beautiful antennae examined in more detail under the microscope.

If someone knows the name of this subject, I would appreciate the identification.

Walt, a very nice and clean picture of a male 'non-biting midge', that's what you call 'em over there, IIRC.
To be internationally understood and more precise, it'd be better to say: a chironomid (midge), or Insecta: Diptera: Chironomidae.
