    That looks like a bumblebee with fancy wings. Thanks for the neat shots of a critter I've never seen.

    Yup, that's what they are. They make for some nice exercise don't they?

    I love shooting them too - can't resist I've seen some almost as large as my thumb and others which are tiny in comparison. Hope you come across some more of them.

    What's a Loupe for anyway?

    Thanks scott-devon!
    Loupey, they're definitely one of the more fun subjects for me. I remember seeing one that was pretty big...I mistook it for a hummingbird (hence the name...lol).
