Jeg var i meget sterk tvil om jeg i det hele tatt skulle bruke dette bildetl, for dette ble ingen helt enkel oppgave hverken for meg eller kameraet. Som alle selvsagt kan se, så er dette en liten sommerfugl – eller svermer- av en eller annen type, men vingespennet er ikke særlig mer enn ca 12 mm (vingetipp til vingetipp). Og den sitter på utsiden av vårt kjøkkenvindu på en overskyet og regntung dag. Dertil er bildet tatt på en avstand av ca 3 cm!!!
Jeg har heller ikke den minste anelse om hva slags insekt dette er, men jeg falt for muligheten til å fotografere den helt spesielle vingestrukturen som vel ikke kan sies å være helt vanlig for en ‘sommerfugl’? Da har den større likhet med fugler og fjær! Men et litt uvanlig bilde ble det jo? Og alle sider ved min kamera-telefon må naturligvis testes ut?  🙂
Kvaliteten på bildet kunne kanskje ha vært bedre, men her er det i alle fall!
I mangel av et bedre navn, så har jeg altså valgt å kalle det ‘Delicado’!  🙂I was in real doubt as to whether I should even try to use this picture, as it turnes out to be quite a challenge for the camera as well as myself! As you can all observe: This is some unknown specie of a butterfly/swarmer but the wing span is no more than approximately 12 mm. And it haf found refuge from the rainy weather on the outside of our kitchen window. Besides the picture has been shopt at a distance of about one inch only!
And I haven the faintest idea what kind of insect I have shot here, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to shoot the very unusual wing structure that remind me more of the feather structure with a bird than the wings of a normal butterfly?
But I did get myself a very different picture this time? 🙂 And, og course,all sides with my mobile camera has to be tested! 🙂
The quality of thos shot might have been better, but here it is anyway! And in lack of a better more suitable name, I’ve chosen to call it ‘Delicado’! 🙂

    So, it was you that answered and ended up in my SPAM-file here? (Instantly deleted as no name or ID)
    But then I gor the same message over again with your name attached to it! 🙂
    Have you registered now? Then things will probably work more smoothly in the future?
    I never realized how special it was befor I started to study it on a larger screenm and decided to let you all have a look.

    Wow! What a fascinating insect! Maybe from the moth family? Great shot!

    What a creature, and great shot. It does look almost alien, like someone else said.

  5. Dina says:

    I have never seen anything like this one, such an amazing creature. Good that you had your camera at hand! 🙂

      That would explain it, Sue ! 🙂
      But please note the structure of its wings! How would this in effect work in practice?
      It seems that each wing have 11 or 12 separate feather-looking elements? And how will they work in unison?
      ‘Strange’ to put it mildly!

      • Yes maybe its a nanobot! lol.. Drone… I cannot fathom its wing structure either.. Maybe you should send the picture to a bug specialist to identify.. We have a few wild life sites here in the UK which you can do that to..
        I am sure they would be interested.. or at least give you its name.

    Ja det var jo en meget spesiell jager bomber? Men hva det er eller heter kan jeg ikke bidra med? Var nå heldig og fikk ett flott navn hos deg!

    • Seenorway says:

      Nja, også kommenterer du som ‘utenforstående’? Mistet passet ditt også? 🙂
      Ja, navnet er jo greit, men – det er det jo ingen andre som kjenner – eller husker!
      Lurer litt på hvordan vår verden vil se ut etter hvert?!
