Amazon Part 10

Post by Moebius »

Browsed through all my picture I have left to go last night and can say there are some very interesting subjects coming up...mimics, many things I don't know what they are, poison dart frogs, 50+ more species of leafhoppers (including some very unusual ones), many different butterflies/caterpillars, false scorpions, etc.

However, to keep track of what I am posting, still going in chronological order. Many times as I am going through them, I may see a better pic of an insect that I have already posted, so you may see the same species more than once.


I don't know what this is/developmental stage this is...can't remember how large.


Same with this guy...kinda looks like a roach though


The body shape of this is all too familiar, but haven't seen with with this leopardesque color scheme around the central US.

WOW....count me in when you print your book Ken.. The first one is a Juvenile shield/stink bug. The second one is some form of cockroach for sure (very pretty one), and the third one looks like an assassin bug of the prickly clan. Very nice pictures Ken. =P~

Nasty looking leaf that roach is posing on - smart thinking on it's part I would say. It would be interesting to see how that sharp looking character in pic3 goes about reproducing - very carefully I would imagine! :lol:

Great pics Ken.

3rd pic reminds me of the Mi-24 Hind helicopter - both in shape and camo scheme :)

Judging by all the pics you're showing, it looks like you had a v. interesting and rewarding time, Ken.

Some pretty wild looking bugs there Ken. I would have ot agree with everyone else on the second and third as being a roach and some kind of assassin, don't know about the other one. :D
