As common as they are, not very often the subject of a photo. These wonderful little creatures known as Rough Woodlouse (Porcellio scaber) have very rudimentary ways of living on dry land, coming out of the seas originally. But they do survive sucessfully for over millions of years on that dry land. Enough reason for a picture. A lovely couple of Silver-green leaf Weevils (Phyllobius argentatus). A beautiful freckled nymph of a (probably) grasshopper. The remains of a transformed dragonfly in late afternoon light. A female Myathropa florea on a flower is feasting on pollen. It's a mess..... A beautiful Migrant Hawker (Aeshna mixta) in our garden, This bee (Epeoloides coecutiens) is fast asleep on some cane. They grab the cane with their jaws and hold on tight, stiffening their entire bodies. A female and male Green Tiger Beetle (Cicindela campestris) mating as they walk the scorching sands in the lower-Alps. Such a happy little dragonfly this Vagrant Darter (Sympetrum vulgarum) Catching flies in our garden on a warm October afternoon. A male Black Darter (Sympetrum danae) resting on some reed. A male Southern Hawker (Aeshna cyanea) in flight. Jumping Spiders have the most advanced eyes of all species of spiders. Unfortunately this beautiful, colourful Mayfly, depending on the exact species, lives only a couple of minutes, up to a day at most. This fly has made a fatal mistake... Just for fun, a little look inside the kitchen. A female Common Glowworm (Lampyris noctiluca) at night in a green field, waiting for a mate. Technically not the best photograph I ever took, but for me though, it's kinda special. This Blue Bottle Fly (Calliphora vomitoria) seems to make a jump! It's actually somewhat hovering through the sky. This Deerfly (Chrysops relictus) with it's beautiful eyes found refuge on our window. A female Wolf spider (Lycosidae spec.) with her youngsters on her back. This picture must be pure horror for some. A Hoverfly hovering in our garden on a sunny day. With flash on it really makes him stand out of the background. Chris Ruijter on 500px
