I was working in the garden when I noticed that, every now and again, there would be a "mini cloud" of butterflies from a buddleia when something unseen set them off. Needless to say, as soon as I went for my camera all such activity stopped. Nonetheless, here is the poor man's version, which still shows five or six butterflies in the pic. I will try again if I see similar activity.

My fear of bees and my lack of photographic skill limited me to these shots. It was a matter of shoot, run and crop.

No wings, but there was a huge ant hill near our camping spot at the lake and I was able to get an insect photo for the collective shoot. I don't have any insect shooting skills. But it was fun to try.

Do 8 legs and technically not an insect count?

Do soon-to-be butterflies count?

Cricket in 3D. Wear your red-cyan glasses!

Insects are rare this time of year, the arachnids and arthropods eat any survivors of the extreme heat. Most that you see are house pests or shyly nocturnal. Here's a cricket on my kitchen floor in the middle of the night shot with a Lytro:
