Macro photo of five-spot burnet moths mating on flowers
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on July 16th, 2007. Click picture for larger view.

In this picture I believe you can see some five-spot burnets (Zygaena trifolii) mating, but it could also be the similar six-spot burnet (Zygaena filipendulae) because the spots can be merged. If anyone is an expert on this please let me know by leaving a comment. I would also like to know what the flowers are called.

Anyways. It looks like the insects are having a really good time ๐Ÿ˜‰
Check out my other insect photos.

    I would really recommend you to use the “The excerpt reload” wordpress plugin to reduce your duplicate content. Just leave the image and a short sentence in the front page and the user will click “read more” to go to your single page. It will also increase your page view.

    So you don’t get duplicate content on Google. It will put you into Google Hell.

    Here is the plugin.

    I really like your photo. Especially those mountain, beach, etc!

    Keep shooting!

    The new posts are appeared in the front page. It’s a sign of duplicated content. In other words, the home page contains the content of single page. It will make your single page duplicated content.

    In that case, the single page content is harder to be found on Google.

  3. Hi guys. My internet connection was down all weekend.

    I think I get what you are saying Terence, but couldn’t I just use the !–more– tag that works within wordpress?

  4. I saw these moths when I was on the Island of Canna in Scotland. There were also transparent burnet moths. They’re great moths to photograph because they stay still. One even landed on me.

  5. Are you a Pro, you can take it so close… ๐Ÿ˜€ nice bro.. Butterfly, an interesting creature ๐Ÿ˜€

    To Terence Chang, thanks bro, you are helping other blogger so much, I never forget your comment on my post that my link is broken. As soon as I’ve found it, I delete the link, thanks bro!
