Bug Eyes


Very colorful bug eyes.

Of this bug.

An Owlfly. Which is neither an owl nor a fly, in case you were wondering.

Owlflies are similar to dragon flies in body shape, big eyes, wings, and as airborne predators. But unlike dragonflies Owlflies have antennae.

And much more colorful eyes. They are apparently common, albeit locally so. We  not seen any in our yard. We saw these at Franklin Parker Preserve at the National Moth Week event held there.
