    Yea, sorry.. I just can't understand why people are disgusted by insects.
    Them not having lips doesn't seem like the real reason though.. kind of trivial.
    I've seen it with my own eyes by the way.. numerous times

    At least better than humans can.
    Insects are the true rulers of the world, humans just think they are.

    Ms. Bug is lovely (or Lil' Bug). That's also adorable!

    Well there were still only brown ones, so it's a fair assumption that some of them were juvenile males.
    The blue ones are never as abundant though, but I like their coloring better

    I actually saw a couple of Leopard Spotted Earthballs today. Growing in a wooded but open area and fed by decayed wood and debris.

    It seems to be an odd time for them.. although I have no clue whether or not they grow all year round.
    I know a spot where some Amanita's grow in the middle of the winter (if it's not too cold). I think they are gemmata's, but I haven't made a definitive ID though.

    i was referring to the clip itself.
    insects are as disgusting to me as they ever were.
    that doesn't mean i can't marvel at their construction or social habits.

    I walk out there frequently. Here are a couple of pics I took today.

    Pretty small pics. I put them in my album (SciForums) where you can see them enlarged.

    I don't know how much you can tell from my album http://www.sciforums.com/album.php?albumid=55
    but I added a few more pics from todays hike.

    There were two places where I found the Leopards. One was pretty open and in decaying debris. The other was pretty sandy. Both were surrounded by old Florida woodlands.

    Oh heh.. you misunderstood, I was just interested in how the environment looked (the one from picture '014')

    Pic 14 was near a sandy walking trail through an open area in the remote woodland. The camera is a 7 megapixel HP Photosmart.

    Can you identify the mushroom that looks like an open upside down umbrella (pics 4 and 5)? Those were in my lawn this morning.

    I guessed Bolbitius coprophilus earlier, but they don't seem to have a ring like yours have. So.. no clue, sorry.
