THIS WEEK'S FOCUS: BUGS!
Some of the photgraphs below may not be of particularly high artistic merit, but I've
been having some fun lately using the "macro" setting on my camera to take
close-up photographs of assorted bugs. Check out all NINE photos!



LEAP OF FAITH
This little red bug came very close to accepting my offer of
an index finger to walk on ... then, changed its mind.

A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
Actually, this walking stick seemed very comfortable walking up my arm.
(Many more to go)

FACE TO FACE
A face only a mother could love. This guy is
only about three-quarters of an inch long!

THE AMARYLLIS EATER
This little grasshopper was having a feast on my amaryllis plant.
At least it was being artistic with the patterns it was creating.

HEY, FOUR-EYES
Something about this little spider reminds me of an American
flag. Its diameter is only about one-half of an inch.

ONE FRESH CICADA
This photograph was taken around 3 o'clock in the morning -- less
than one hour after the cicada had shed its larval skin.

FEATHERS AND A RED NECKLACE
A most-stylish moth. I've
always loved that color scheme!

WHO A'YOU LOOKIN' AT?
As I was in the process of writing the HTML for this week's Picture of the Week, I noticed
this wasp on the floor. At first, I thought the wasp was dying, but it flew away shortly
after my having taken its photograph. I know it's still in the house ... somewhere.

MOB MENTALITY
It looks like the ants got the better of these wasps.
(That's all of 'em! Sorry about the unhappy ending.)
