The bees were buzzing around but to get a picture of them in flight is almost impossible as you can see. :) Well it is an ALMOST good one. :)
The Antlion larvae is only about 5mm in length. As everyone knows, they make cone-shaped holes in the sand and lay in wait for ants to fall in.
Because of the gradient, there is no way the ant can get out and faster than lightening, the antlion grabs it with its pincers and drags it under. Dinner is served!!
The males of the Western Julia Skimmer have a pale blue abdomen.
They bask on rocks and twigs from which they make short flights using their bristly legs that act as a basket to capture prey in flight.
In contrast to other four-winged insects, the fore- and hindwings of dragonflies are not coupled; they function independently. Thanks to this double flight-power system, large dragonflies Anisoptera) are capable of carrying out Incredible flight maneuvers. Even gliding flight, which is seldom found in Pterygota, is part of their repertoire. This energetically and thermoregulatory important flight behavior enables one to treat the wings of these animals as aerofoils.
