Great Burnet With Butterfly
The flower is quite striking. The butterfly was a nice touch. I thought this was a European Skipper at the time, but it quite clearly isn't.
Species: Sanguisorba officinalis (Great Burnet, official burnet), Lycaena mariposa (Mariposa Copper)

Russet Percher
This was probably the easiest species to photograph - long perching times and quite striking colours compared to the background.

I was happy to see a new to me kind of large butterfly. The day was a bit cooler than last year so not as many insects were out.

Four Spotted Skimmer On End Of Reed

Orb Weaver On Web

Species: Araneus diadematus (cross orbweaver, orb-weaver)

Eight Spotted Skimmer
I was surprised how lazy this insect was given that it wasn't the early part of the day.
Species: Libellula forensis (Eight-spotted Skimmer)

Claira Found Caterpillar
Claira found a caterpillar walking across the trail. She didn't want to pick it up in her hand, but she was okay with using a stick.

Tree Nymph Eating From Flower
I don't add species to animals that are in captivity. While this particular species was flying around outside the zoo, I believe this picture was taken from inside their butterfly exhibit.

Four Spotted Skimmer
shot f 14 trying to get enough depth of field to get from one wing to the other. Shot 1/60th of a second at 400asa. Still missed it - the focus point was probably the stem so I lost the wing closer and the bug is blurry. Good try, but fail.

Dragonfly With Nymph Skin
This isn't the dragonfly that just crawled out of the pond - the dragonflies liked this perch and regularly pushed each other off of it. I'm not even sure that is the skin of a dasher - there are other species of dragonflies in this pond.
Species: Pachydiplax longipennis (Blue Dasher)

Banded Alder Borer On Log
I was really surprised to see this bug - I have never seen anything like it in Canada before. I've seen Macro/bug blogs online, mostly in tropical countries and I thought they have all the interesting insects. We aren't so bad.
