I seem to be on a bird and bug kick lately. Why not? They are plentiful here in the countryside and they tend to make themselves available for me to photograph. I spotted this guy (or gal?) yesterday on a dandelion over by the forbidden forest on the island. I have no idea of what it is but it sure makes nice pictures. Anyone who actually knows what this is can leave a comment.

Mad, MAD Google skills. 😉
