Photograph of a red belted clearwing moth

An Insect A Day part 5

Prof Bill Amos of the Department of Zoology continues his insect photo diary with images of weevils, clearwing moths and a remarkable bumblebee mimic. Follow his orange tip caterpillar as it grows too – you can see it as an egg and newly hatched caterpillar in earlier posts.

You can see more of Bill’s photographs on the blog:

An Insect A Day for bee fly, orange tip buttefly and parasitic wasp.

An Insect A Day continues for scorpion fly, shield bug and click beetle.

An Insect A Day Part 3 for wasp beetle; dragonfly and aphids giving birth.

An Insect A Day Part 4 for metallic beetles and day-flying moths.

Insect-eye View for sawfly, hoverfly and solitary bees.

Why not have a go at photographing insects yourself? We would love to see your photos of wildlife where you are. Share with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram by tagging us or using #OpenYourWindowBingo to feature in our online Community Gallery.
