  1. Beautiful image — great choice on depth of field — and interesting information. I’m wondering now if “dubius” is also the root for the similar English word; that would make sense. Thanks for this lovely post!

    • Hi Cate. Thanks for the comment. “Dubius” raised the same question with us. It’s interesting how the roots of many of our words change over time. Personally, I always try to find the definition of the Latin for these scientific names; sometimes, as in the case, the words fit. Now, every time I look at one of these little guys, I’ll be thinking about the “dubius/dubious” manner in which they run back and forth!
