    Still waiting to hear back from the entomologist- may see if I can find another point of contact. They where pretty damn small; 2-3mm long. Wouldn't notice them unless you had them under magnification so to speak.

    Thanks, Falconest. I was out with my little waterproof P&S. The nice thing is those P&S cameras have great macro modes. Mainly wanting to get my kayaking practice for a little possible water time during an upcoming Alaska trip. I am hoping to be able to use my E-5 in an Aquapac bag for some glacier photos...

    Kgosden;
    I have friends in Fairbanks. He is a Surgical PA in Orthopedic Surgery. His wife is a Dental Hygenist. That one website listed in my Signature is to a friend that is a Wildlife Photographer. He has been to Alaska numerous times, and has had the privilege of shooting the Mackenzie River bears. Would love to go there, someday.

    Falconest,

    I am not quite getting up to Fairbanks. Our plan is a week on the Kenai peninsula and a week split between Wrangell-St Elias and Denali. My biggest dilemma at the moment is which of the camera bags I have bought is going and what to leave behind. Yeah, this is off topic.

    Common butterfly, Common weed-Uncommon picture

    White cabbage butterflies, one of the most common in the Northeast US, Dandilions, commonest weed in the US. One rare thing- getting the b'fly to sit on the weed long enuf to photograph.

    Count the scales, if you can

    Gabe C;
    Nice set of shots. We have a similar damselfly here in the US, that I have seen only once in my area.
    Can you count the scales on this little beauty? Not bad for a 'Macro' zoom lens. Tammy Strikes again.
