Today I put in 1000 photo in TN.Thanks to for trust and support.

Aphids, also known as plant lice and in Britain and the Commonwealth as greenflies, blackflies or whiteflies, (not to be confused with "jumping plant lice" or true whiteflies) are small sap sucking insects, and members of the superfamily Aphidoidea. Aphids are among the most destructive insect pests on cultivated plants in temperate regions.The damage they do to plants has made them enemies of farmers and gardeners the world over, but from a zoological standpoint they are a very successful group of organisms.Their success is in part due to the asexual reproduction capability of some species.
About 4,400 species of 10 families are known. Historically, many fewer families were recognised, as most species were included in the family Aphididae. Around 250 species are serious pests for agriculture and forestry as well as an annoyance for gardeners. They vary in length from 1 to 10 millimetres (0.04 to 0.39 in).
Natural enemies include predatory ladybirds, hoverfly larvae, parasitic wasps, aphid midge larvae, crab spiders, lacewings and entomopathogenic fungi like Lecanicillium lecanii and the Entomophthorales.

The Ruby Tiger (Phragmatobia fuliginosa) is a moth of the family Arctiidae. It is found in Europe. There are a number of recognized subspecies, such as P. f. melitensis in Malta and P. f. borealis in Scotland.
The wingspan is 35–45 mm. The moth flies from May to August depending on the location.
The caterpillars feed on various herbaceous plants.

Congrats on your 1000'th upload! Nice shot of this caterpillar. I like the addition of the Aphids.


Hi Siggi,
Congratulations on your 1000th posting. It is a truely a great milestone on this site. I can only imagine the time and effort it has taken you to get there. It would be not much to post a 1000 but its takes a little more effort when you only post good ones. Love your portfolio, keep up the good work. Oh ya nice photo.
