Larry: Somehow I knew you might look that way... But donít worry, that is no dishonour! The only fact that makes me nervous is: you belong to the octopedes, and these normally are not just platonic lovers of our two-winged darlings, no: they eat them!!! So to avert danger from the forum (viz. depletion in photo objects) please make sure that you approach our sweeties with your camera pressed tightly to your mouth and warn them by flashlight so that they can take refuge immediately after the shot!
(Btw, little Katie seems to have photographed another Larry with much less legs...)

Katka: Please try uploading your photo again (donít forget: no spaces in the file name!), I really want to see our Queen of Lauxaniids!

Andrzej: Do you know the species name of the lovely Irises, is it I. sibirica? It seems I have them in my garden, too.

To contribute another photo to the second part of our portraitsí thread, here is one that shows our current favourite pastime: insect photography!

Best wishes to all true fly lovers, irrespective of their leg numbers,
Claudia (Sundew)
