~Firefly's Photography Showcase~
-All pictures below are taken by me-

I have a tendency to take a ton of pictures when something catches my attention, and kinda thought a few of you might also enjoy photography. So, a made this thread mainly to be a 'personal favorites' gallery, comprised solely of photographs that I've taken in recent years.

Happy New Year Everyone! :D
New Year's 2019

Yogi & Reggie A couple of ratsnakes I found last summer. Confirmed that they were definitely a pair after finding them several weeks in a row, always close to each other.

Yogi (Ratsnake) Named this little boy after a cartoon character I used to love watching (yes, the bear...). He's very gentle, and can usually be found wherever Reggie tends to stay.

Other Animals & Insects I often find a lot of beautiful and unusual critters during the summer. Some of the especially interesting ones being those in the bug category. Here, I will be posting some personal favorites -and might even need help identifying some of them on occasion. :)


Insects

Polyphemus Moth I've found several of these beautiful moths before, and up until recently, thought they were a type of Emperor moth (still very close).

American Snout These small butterflies are abundant in the summer.

Antlion With an adult appearance similar to Lacewings, the larvae of these beautiful insects are sometimes called ''doodlebugs'' for their habit of burrowing trails in the dirt, and making sand traps. The one pictured below is grown.

Tomato Hornworm This brightly-colored caterpillar is actually the larva of a large moth, known as the Five-spotted hawk moth. The caterpillar's size can range anywhere from 3 to 5 inches, before spinning a cocoon. Though often thought otherwise, they are actually completely harmless.

[font=georgia][size=5][i][b]Plants & Flowers[/b][/i][/size][/font] [i]For as long as I can remember, I've always loved flowers and the natural world (which is part of the reason why I take so many pictures). A flowers' bloom may last anywhere from a few hours, to maybe even a few weeks but, a photograph can last for years. At least they give me something pretty to look at during the winter. ^u^ [/i] [font=georgia][size=4][i][b]Thistle Bloom Close-up[/b].[/i][/size][/font] [img]https://i.imgur.com/2mHIFmx.jpg[/img]
