Strange Insects

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

No, I don't mind at all - but thanks for asking. I'm glad you like them.

Wow, good find. No doubt that's the one. Just got to identify it now.

Actually Ron, after going round and round the internet and getting nowhere, a climb up the directory tree you supplied identified it to be the Rosy Maple Moth (Dryocampa rubicunda). Why didn't I just do that in the first place? :roll:

It doesn't surprise me that it belongs to the same family as the original specimen above (Saturniidae).

Thanks for the ID.

Borogroves in pink capes! Fantastic. I've seen you twiggy caterpillar - way up in NY state, I think, unless it was in Africa.

Stick Bug

Postby deeannahopkins » Tue 15 Apr 2008 01:37 GMT

We live in Loomis CA and my husband found a stick bug on one of our rose bushes.
if it hadn't been for our 14 yr old son we would not have known what it was. The one he caught looks just like the one in the photo
