This challenge gives you the opportunity to showcase some interesting insects, or arthropods which you've captured on your camera. Let's think beyond honey bees, bumblebees, butterflies etc to some of the more unusual creatures you've found. If you don't know what they are, then another member might know. The insects should be outside in the natural world if possible, doing their natural thing. Macro and close-up photos welcome. Size of entry:1,600px MAXIMUM.
