    Default The clubbed Eyes

    ID: Owlfly

    One of the most noticeable part of the owlfly, these club type antennae of the owlfly standout. Apart from the bulging, complex eyes these knobby/clubbed tips of the antennae stands apart and help us spotting the same in the surroundings. Similar to the closely resembling dragonflies, these are almost similarly ferocious predators, but their flight nd usual activities doesnt tend to be so ferocious, rather resembling a timid behavior and slow flight.

    They are such minute creations, we hardly observe them so closely. Nice shades of brown with hair like sensors. Thanks for sharing the information. Look forward to more.

    Interesting details in one of the antennae. i agree with Mrudul's observation that it is difficult to see such details through our naked eye. One can marvel at the awesome creation of God Only when one sees such details. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
