I haven’t been able to identify this strange creature, though it definitely seems to be a kind of winged insect. Any help is appreciated :) Taken November 2010, Brisbane Australia.

Shot with a Canon 7D, 100mm f/2.8L lens, mt-24ex and kenko extension tubes. Processed raw in Photoshop CS5.

    You’ve stumped me, I can’t find anything :P Could you take another photo from a different angle please? ;) (beautiful photo, by the way. I still have no idea how you get them to be so huge without scaring them away)

  • Yeah it’s got me too Sonja. Sure I’ll just go find it.. despite it being over 3 months ago on the other side of Brisbane! :D How do I do it? Well, quietly, carefully, and hoping for the best pretty much :) Thanks again.
