Bugs in Korea

Here are some pictures of bugs from hiking trips during May 2013 in Korea. These photos were all taken with my new Canon camera.

First, a couple of ladybirds.

Pine bark beetles are very common in the hills. They are well camoflauged for trunks of pine trees, where they usually hang out.

A big wasp. Taking these pictures was a little scary – luckily I have quite a good zoom on my camera.

A big beetle, who really didn’t want to be outside the pine needles. It kept trying to get back under them, making it very difficult to take a photo.

Some swallowtail pictures. These were my favourite insects growing up and I never thought I would live somewhere where I could see them every day.
