A WORM!! I always call them earthworms. I bet people who use them for bait say "night crawlers". I used to hate walking to school when it was raining, because there were worms all over the sidewalks. For some reason, I remember that little fact...

Hello Felans, welcome!

If you wish, there is an Introduce Yourself thread (seen only by members signed in) to say Hello with.

Nice butterflies or moths (bugs).

If you want to fix the picture (turn it upside down again so it looks right side up, use the little icon of a pen and paper above the message posted area to enter into your previous posting and edit it as you wish.

It is a nice job (nice scan, nicely cropped) for a first or second (saw your bird stamps also) picture post.

KirkS - Yes, Jean Pheulpin sure knew how to carve 'em.

Dragonfly, semi-postal stamp designed by Signe "Ham" Hammarsten-Jansson, engraved by Reijo Achrén, and issued by Finland on December 7, 1954 to benefit the Tuberculosis Society, Scott No. B128, Facit No. 438. I'm glad these critters don't bite people.

fifia - Nice one. Nasty-looking stinger, that.

Jean-Henri Casimir Fabre (1823-1915) was a prominent French entomologist and author. In one of Fabre's most famous experiments, he arranged processionary caterpillars to form a continuous loop around the edge of a pot. As each caterpillar instinctively followed the silken trail of the caterpillars in front of it, the group moved around in a circle for seven days. Here is an image of a stamp depicting Fabre surrounded by his beloved bugs, designed (probably after a sketch by family member M.E. Fabre) and engraved by Robert Cami, and issued by France on April 7, 1956 as one of a set of four scientists stamps, Scott No. 790, Y&T No. 1055.

nethryk, you must be a retired Harvard Professor.
Your postings are 5*'s.

Chrysalis. Always has been an interesting subject in my life. Maybe one of these days I turn into a butterfly. Right now I am here:

The pupa stage is when the most dramatic changes happen and metamorphosis is taking place. It is the most vulnerable stage so mimicry is highly developed. Chrysalis will look like an emerging bud or fruit or like lichen or dead leaf. Papilio schmeltzii supports itself by a silk threat that is spun by the larva before it pupates. It will remain in this form for weeks



and the total story:

fifia - Thanks. I think your posts are terrific, too. No, I'm not a college professor, retired or otherwise, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once.

The Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata) is an important pest of potato crops across North America and Eurasia. Here is an image of a stamp depicting a potato beetle, designed by Otto Stefferl, combined engraved and photogravure, and issued by Austria on August 29, 1967 to publicize the 6th International Congress for Plant Protection, Vienna, Scott No. 796.
