Forest Bling

Insect life is a wonder to watch. Here is a beautiful, jewel-like beetle,over an inch long. There are dragon & damsel flies of all colors & sizes. Beatiful butterflies & moths arrayed in an amazing variety of textures & tones. Multi-colored banana spiders harmlessly adorn the forest with their beautiful webs.

I was able to capture images of both male & female cow-killers. Here is a male. They are hard to shoot as they are so fast.

We watched as cicada killers dug out their prey and dragged them up into the trees.
