A few years ago I spent a lot of time to develop a technique to sho insects in flight, trying to highlight the movement of the wings. Some of his pictures are on TN since 2007. For those who do not know them, I present a composition of some pictures of flying insects, mainly beetles. I hope you enjoy.
From left to right and from top to bottom are:
Graphosoma italicum.
Lucanus cervus.
Pyrochroa coccinea.
Chlorophorus pillosus.
Cetonia aurata.
Xylocopa violacea.
Oxythyrea funesta.
Melolontha Melolontha.
Clytus Arietis.

Bonsoir Didier,
An excellent collage of insect flight studies. Each image is sharp and natural-coloured to allow easy recognition of the different insect species and the collage is well arranged.
Plaisir de voir!
Merci pour le partage,

Bonsoir Didier,
Tu es spécialiste des insectes volants et je me souviens bien-sûr aussi de tes publications plus anciennes. J'aime beaucoup ici cet assemblage avec une formidable variété d'insectes. Et je ne savais pas qu'il existait un "drap mortuaire" dans la nature! Un posting vraiment intéressant et bien présenté.
Un grans merci!
Bonne soirée
