Colossal Cave

I'm being all lazy with this one. My better half is working diligently on a detailed post, so rather than parrot her I'm posting a pic. To it, I will add only this: you have no idea how many shots I took of this insect with its wings closed, only to have it open them immediately following the shutter click. I think my patience was worth it.

It's a beautiful shot, Wontar! Good timing, too. I just watched a show last night that talked about how monarchs carry a poison from milkweed on the scales of their wings. How's that for a perspective changer?

Thanks Sam! Yeah, I remember that from way back when. The colors of insects denote whether or not they're poisonous/venomous. Black, orange, yellow... and probably more, but that's all I remember.

I'll try to take pictures of things that aren't inherently dangerous at some point!
