I am not a bug lover. In fact I really hate them. But I can look at a picture of them without freaking out and this one has some really pretty markings. What kind is he/she?
I'm not a bug lover either but this one sure is big and beautifully colored. Nice shot as always.Pam
That bug sure has a grip on his perch. Very colorful. I don't like bugs either but I do like to take pictures of them.
Make that four for non-lovers of bugs ... but I like to take close up photographs of them and this one is a beaut.
For anyone wanting to know, this is a Giant Mesquite Bug. They favor places where mesquite trees and bushes abound.
You have captured this little guy/girl perfectly! The detail and color is just right. I think photographing insects is some of the more challenging things that we do considering their size and potential movements. Johnconnectedtothevinephotography.blogspot.com
