I took this pic in southern France. This insect belongs to the genus Myrmeleonidae.
Very nice! I remember Palpares from Turkey and Greece. They are really huge.
Yep, huge they are.
And they are beautiful when they fly, they look as a dragon but much slower.
Very nice. How big?
Well, how to explain? Spread your fingers as far as you can. The distance from the tip of your thumb to the tip of your small finger is about its wing span.
That's a whole Octave!
I would love to see one of those.
Dang, that's huge....
nice shot, but man it's giving me the creeps haha
Those are really beautiful insects! Especially when in-flight, clumsy but beautiful!
very beautiful, as well
Awesome shot, it would be fun to try to capture it in flight, like a bird.
