Here is a classic male Stenacron interpunctatum / conjunctum example. 8mm length I guess we would call it a ( light cahill ) ???? Sorry that's all the pictures of this guy.

Is that in the spinner stage?

Hi Bruce

Yup he is a spinner. To get them to pose even using the technique I am using is still tough because time is so limited. I put each in a small plastic container and place it in the freezer for about 2-3 minutes, while I set up the camera and lighting. If you look at some of my photo series they start out with their legs tucked in then they flutter to get warm again that is how I can get a picture with their wings spread like a butterfly. Then they open their legs and are often ready to fly in about 40 seconds. Some only require a minute in the freezer some up too 5 minutes. Females tend to recover very quick and the males sometime they sit curled up for as much as 5 minutes. So overall the males appear to be more sensitive to the cold.
