Frog



Marine iguana:



Hammerhead fly (Richardiidae):



This wasp-mimicking tiger moth (Isanthrene sp.) is a true wonder and delight. Although the photo isn't great, it does show one particularly amazing detail. The two lines of white scales on the black abdomen which simulate the reflection of light on a wasp's smooth, black stinger!



Wasp-mimicking treehopper (Heteronotus sp.):



Glass frog:



Adult hooded mantis (Choeradodis sp.):



Juvenile hooded mantis:



Crab orbweaver (Micrathena clypeata) with egg sac:



Weevil infected with cordyceps fungus (Ophiocordyceps curculionum):



For those curious about the watermarking, I am providing a kind of Ethical Exif data, essentially detailing the nature of the interaction with the subject.

For those curious about the EE legend and scale you can refer to an earlier post

Thanks for looking and commenting,
Paul

For me that link (https://tinyurl.com/y7vvoxv3) produces "Page not found", showing a long and incomprehensible URL that begins "https://www.facebook.com/search/str/points%2B2%2B4%2B5%2Band%2B6./keywords_blended_posts?filters_rp_author" .

Google search does find me some useful info at http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1502750 , but that has the same troublesome tinyurl.

Thanks Rik, I changed the link, let me know if it's still causing issues.

Kudos on the EE stuff. This really does help a lot to understand how the photo was made.

One oddity: the H scale applies a little weirdly to the weevil with cordyceps, which I presume was already dead when photographed.

Thanks for the feedback. It was just to indicate that the cordyceps in this case wasn't affected. For example if a leaf or twig with cordyceps infected individual is removed, and then dropped to forest leaf litter, it can affect spore dispersal. I might amend the EE data for subjects like fungi, but for now the consistency of application is the priority.

I applaud that effort, Paul. Hope it catches on. I remember our earlier discussion about stressed frogs. I also remember many years ago seeing a beautiful Urania moth photo on the front cover of a glossy magazine, and then looking closely and noticing glue between its feet and the branch it was sitting on. Sometimes there is no other way, but it would be refreshing if all photographers were honest like this about how the photo was taken. One of the main virtues of photography is its faithfulness to the subject, but suspicion of manipulation removes that virtue for many photos today. It would be nice to restore that virtue.
