Recommended Viewing: Sankax’s Photostream on Flickr

I may not be blogging about them, but we are continue to accrue Family Hikes (about one a week). This past Sunday, we ran across a lovely insect called the Ebony Jewelwing (Calopteryx maculate). In searching for photos, I stumbled across Sankax’s Photostream on Flickr and I found myself captivated. If you would like to see some stunning insect photos (that are Creative Commons to boot), check it out.

A sampling:
