The season of insect photography is coming to an end. I am lucky to get out once or twice a week now, and soon it will be too cold for anything to be moving.
Today we had a thunderstorm, however, and it is pretty warm now. I was able to photograph some live insects.
but the thing that interested me the most is probably dead. I think this is a barklouse which has been infested with a fungus. This is not so unusual in the world of insects, but I don’t run across it every day. Or maybe it’s a woolly aphid.
