Macro picture of a blue eyed sawfly (Rhogogaster viridis)

Macro picture of a sawfly with blue eyes
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on June 24th, 2007. Click picture for larger view.

Time for another macro photo of an insect. This time I have captured a sawfly (Rhogogaster viridis) clinging to a straw.
I really like the blue eyes on this sawfly. If you look at my other sawfly photo you can see that sawfly having a different eye color. I believe they are different species.
Need to get myself an insect book to educate myself on the nature around me.

Check out my other insect photos if you digg insects!
