Ascalaphe Owlflies

Author 'Boucher Marc dit de Meilh' (Id 117127 ) : Another photo of the sulfur Ascalaphe (Libelloides coccajus) which belongs to the family of Neuroptera. This is a male, recognizable by the hooks at the end of the abdomen and its thinness. The female has a larger abdomen. This insect is amusing in his face and abdomen very hairy. By way of flying, dancing between 3 and 4 meter haureur. Spotted in Bourgoin-Jallieu (Isère) on 05.18.2010 to 15 hours on sunny slopes and very hot ... Marc.

Very beautiful shot, the insect very well developed and more a little unknown to all of us, rarity is also the beauty (but especially the photographer !...) BRAVO for this excellent find. KUDOS to the photographer. Very friendly.

A cliche that wears out crumb... It is true that the Ascalaphe sulfur is quite rare. I didn't know him and I had never seen him and yet my parents had a farm with high grass in the fields, exposed to the south, south-east, etc, I am in complete agreement with your comment in any case. Thank you and good day. Marc.

This is also true Gipsy34. But had it not our good old wooden electric poles in what would we do with digital Gipsy ???... So we need to stop complaining about ... Perhaps there is abuse, too many son placed anyhow? ... But the son in the urban landscape, I like they are part of the landscape, the landscape would be naked without them, I do not see a cityscape without son ... And then the son may come and ask a few swallows, other birds, right? Well, I kiss you and more Gipsy 34. Marc. : 14:

A very fine specimen (this is my favorite) I've never had the opportunity to meet. To have already seen pictures, I always thought it was a butterfly.

Nenfer13 You see, I like you so far, I've never seen this insect. It was a great surprise in this clearing burning, I assure you this afternoon here ... Beautiful insect, if you saw it as 'swallows' the flies ... The advantage of this site, aside from the magnificent exhibition of photographs is that it is also a cultural, educational, it teaches us many things fabulous! Thank you and see you soon, Marc.
