More Critter Pictures

I’m in the process of exhuming myself from under a mountain of work, that’s why the posting’s been ultra-light. My last link to cool pictures of bugs went over well, so I’m giving you a few more pictures. These come from a friend’s website — be sure to check out the bee and its hitchhiker.

    If you like these things, there’s a great book called “The Smaller Majority” of photographs by zoologist Piotr Naskrecki. Apparently, he didn’t stage the photos, but waited in the muck outside until he got the shots he wanted (how brave!).

    There was a brief interview with him on Science Friday last fall:

    Wonderful pictures. I did flit on over and comment on the hitchhiker. Is not a parasitic wasp but another bee, not of the same species as the bumble bee,
