I took a few pictures of an insect last night, and I really have no idea what it is, and am very curious to find out. Would it be off topic to post it as a question to see if anyone else can possibly classify it?
There are, however, several "what's that bug" sites on the internet you could turn to.
On-topic would be: "How can I take a better picture of this bug, whatever it is?"
On-topic would also be: "I came across this daguerreotype of an insect. Is the photographer known, and what was the historical importance of this artist, image, and technique?"
