Some more great photos Ken. The background to pic2 shows the result of some interesting (although some might say boring) activity. :oops:

Bet Steve Valley pricks up his ears at this one :D

Bruce,

This was one of two downed logs that I got quite a few pics off of. Starting tomorrow I will be showing a fascinating behavioral series of orgiastic aggression between some flies of some sort taken on this same log that is one of my favorites .

I cannot get over how beautiful the Leaf & Treehoppers are in your photos Ken....simply amazing :shock: Here again I would say you have a leafhopper in #1 and a treehopper in #3 and #2, I will say is some sort of Snout Beetle (Weevil). It looks like it has hard elytra (hardened forwings) covering its wings like a beetle. Nice little red mite on the Treehopper :wink:

Playing with words, Bruce? :wink:
Double meaning? :?: :idea: Boring as adjective meaning tiresome and uninteresting or boring as noun meaning the act of drilling? :lol:
Nice photos Ken! :smt023

Absolutely Nikola! For a non-native speaker you show a pretty impressive grasp of the English language.

Lijepi pozdravi (hopefully no gender error Nikola? :D )

3 nice shots, Ken! #2 is very interesting....ain't insect evolution grand? I notice lots of little bore holes in the wood, some with little frass plugs, cool.
