In this issue you will find a large selection of macro photographs of Rostislav Mashin, taken during several trips to Lake Baikal over several years.
On the landing! Barbel flower
Barbel beetle and bandaged wax beetle
The abscess beetle
Krestovik (?) *who can tell you what kind of spider it is?
The wolf spider from Olkhon. Beautiful and kind) A loner, lives in burrows, does not weave a web for catching prey – at night he gets out of the hole and goes hunting.
A separate photo shoot for a pond snail
And a few lepidoptera, day and night
Hawthorn and dwarf lily
The Green Moth
Poplar hawk moth, on take-off
And a little more…
Breakfast for two – black ant and abscess beetle
Spider on a rhododendron flower after the rain
... There is life everywhere – and on a steep cliff above Lake Baikal
...and since we are talking about plants – a blooming rhododendron, after the rain
and "the last snowdrops" - an open Lumbago, aka Dream-grass, in fact, belongs to the buttercup family, but it is often called simply "snowdrop" by the people, because of the early flowering, in April-May. It was a great luck to meet a blooming lumbago in June.
"Hello!". The Barbel Beetle
"Date". The draughtsman and the abscess beetle
Krestovik in ambush
Spider-sidewalker, aka spider-crab
Skakunchik, a spider with a height of slightly more than 2 mm. Very curious, mobile, jumps suddenly and at a distance ten times the length of the body.
Another horse, female, 3 mm at the withers
"Water". Dragonfly larvae are common inhabitants of forest reservoirs: ponds, lakes and swamps. Predators live and guard their prey on the bottom and stems of aquatic plants.
A couple of bokoplavs
Korean (in my opinion) ant lion on a branch of wormwood
Well, and finally – - a small forest sketch
Thank you for watching!)
