I am SO not a bug person.
But I have this new super-duper macro lens, and I went out in the backyard this afternoon to see what sorts of close-up things I could find. And I found bugs.
You know, up close some of them have a fair amount of personality.
I mean, doesn't that guy look like a character from a Pixar movie? With voice by Abe Vigoda?
Then again, I discovered that it doesn't pay to look TOO close.
[Photo removed because it just kept grossing me out. I told you I'm not a bug person.]
I found these critters feasting on a rosebud. YUCK. Guess I'll go to the nursery tomorrow to find out how to keep these little buggers away.
I'd rather take pictures of the flowers, anyway.
