Finally got around to identifying this Snakefly. Found at our campsite in CO 🌞 #snakefly

This #snakefly has one LONG #ovipositor...wonder where she wants to lay her eggs?! #Raphidoptera #Raphididae

You can tell it's a female by the long ovipositor. #snakefly #raphidioptera

One of the main reasons I was first drawn to birds and ornithology is because their is so much diversity in species, habitats, behavior, etc that I am constantly learning new things and generating questions and wondering.
I think the same has happened with insects!!! My god I am in awe... This snake fly landed on my hand while cooking breakfast and I can't guarantee a year ago I would have taking the time to observe. Maybe mistook it for a wasp or something. Instead I thought, "Holy hell! A mini dragon!" Curiosity led me to photograph and research... This #BadassBeneficials is both territorial and carnivorous preying mainly on aphids and mites!
Permaculture is difficult to explain sometimes but one main aspect I believe is to understand the landscape and it's habits... Yes, but this also includes knowing the WHOLE community! Insects, grasses, whatever.
If you take the time to see what flies by I can guarantee you won't ever be bored.
That's all for right now :) Thanks. #SnakeFly #BadassBeneficials

My pet #snakefly (#Agulla sp.) passed away today...T_T Together we shared some good times like a quick and dirty photo session in the hotel room followed by 6 days in the hotel fridge, and the red eye flight back from Portland. You will live on eternally as part of the teaching collection, until a clumsy undergrad breaks your delicate carcass. #entomology #raphidioptera #raphidiidae #rip

I normally never tie a zonker strip on leather side down when I know a fish will be looking up at it, but I'm hoping it looks like a white snake belly from underneath.

Screwing around with a small snake pattern to use for bass and along mangroves. I think the next one I'll flip the zonker so the white leather looks like a belly and I'll ditch the flash.

In a wonderful tourist trap on Brontausaurus Boulevard in the town of Dinosaur, Colorado, we found this dinosaur-like animal. Does anybody know what it is? #dinosaurcolorado #animalphotography #animalkingdom #unknown #insectphoto

Found a #Dragon in the shop. Shop dragon! Anyone know what it is? Winged pygmy giraffe perhaps?
