Bugs' day


Reading back an earlier article: Bird that flies like bug, I realised I had some shots of my own I should have used to illustrate their 50-50 use of upstroke and downstroke to get them lifted.


So, here they are. Shot with 70-200mm, f2.8 nikkor lens on separate outings:

pollination
hardworking insects eying for the same pollen grains


large bug, buhod
buhod is the local ethnic Dusun name for this large social insect. It is the smaller cousin of the black buhod a.k.a bonging (pictures above); usually found feeding and pollinating early in the morning.


sole flying visitor
Lily commonly found growing in unkempt drains.
