Pretty as a Persian Rug

Seems an odd position for a fly...very streamlined

Ok, I don't know if this is an insect or a Northern Pike with wings. Don't even ask me where the mouth is....

WOW...that moth is beautiful. I am going to go out on a limb and say that the third picture is another tree hopper :shock: Incredible photos :shock:
If you turn your laptop upside down, I bet those are not his eyes either. It looks like the smaller spheres could be the eyes. I think I remember seeing a cicada with a long beak like that also :-k Just some observations. :wink:

Very attractive and unususal! :smt023
But thats how those Amazon folks appears. :wink:
I like that "Persian carpet". :D
The third one is like a sort of flying barracuda. :lol:
The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

P.S.
Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D

The third one is a Fulgorid species for sure, never seen that before though, it reminds me somewhat of the "Peanut Head Fulgorid" (Fulgora laternaria). The head is up and the eyes are at the base of the bizarre headlike snout.

Great images, pretty moth, fantastic. :o The last one sort of reminds me of a "cricket bat" but what do I know, I never watch sports anyway. :D

Ok, so now we have leafhoppers, treehoppers, and now Fulgorid Planthoppers. :shock: Still a lot of hoppers in the Amazon :wink:
