A Gorgeous Bug

What Am I?

These photos were from my archive. I have totally forgotten about this amazing and strange looking bug that I saw in the summer. It was hidden underneath some leaves in my garden.

What Are Those Orange Dots?

You know, when you were busy observing something as fascinating as this bug, you forgot to shoot, right? That was me! By the time I remembered to snap some pictures, the bug went away!

Such a Pretty Bug
I still don't know what this bug was, but it was pretty! I like the orange dots on the top of its body, and the beautiful pattern on its wings.

Have a great weekend..

  7. Your pretty bug looks like a crane fly and the orange dots could be mites. What ever it is, for sure it is gorgeous in your pictures!

  8. This insect is very pretty with the bit of red-orange coloring. Great macros!

  9. It's fascinating! I would guess the orange dots are eggs.

  10. looks like some sort of mosquito.. are those eggs? i wonder.. *hugs, Icy*

  11. oh wow, gorgeous indeed Icy, those tiny orange dots made it more unique, am not sure if they are eggs or mites or something else :(

  12. It is lovely and I have no idea what he/she is but it does look somewhat like a dragonfly...My best wishes!!! Cathy

  13. Awesome shot!! Thanks for sharing your archive with us.

  14. Beautiful photos! My boys are always finding neat looking bugs, but my camera never comes out in time. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Wow, looks like a little clump of berries on it's back!

  16. Great macro of this insect. It does look a great deal like a Crane Fly but their eggs are oblong and black. Those orange dots are rather interesting.

  17. I was sure I had seen this one before but somehow I forgot to comment. I am curious about what type of insect this is too.
