I love Spiderman spaghetti!!!!
Female Common Darter Dragonfly. Beautiful.
The science bit: Dragonflies have very large eyes and have very good vision. Vision dominates their behaviour, including predation and looking for mates. The compound eye is made up of ommatidia which is a visual unit consisting of a lens system and a group of light sensitive cells. A large dragonfly may have up to 30,000 ommatidia in each compound eye. Each ommatidium collects one visual information, together form a mosaic image in the dragonfly’s brain.

W00t! Another PhotoFriday Noteworthy for this shot! Many thanks to the voters – most appreciated!
Happy Birthday me 🙂
The alternative image notes for this being: “The operators of the new CCTV cameras at work were so distracted by Jon’s steely stare they did not notice Dave sneak off to Narnia”.
A Cicada skin, kinda gruesome looking but fascinating nonetheless.
I am not sure why this photo has only just made it to this website, as I took it ages ago. It was one of the first photos I took with my Tamron 90mm macro lens, the day after my 30th birthday. It did rather well on DeviantArt – a site I no longer frequent.
Those were the days… lazing about, able to do anything you liked and (almost) always getting away with it. Not a care in the world and drinking from cups that seem way too big. Definitely the good life! Oh, if only I could do it all again.
