Bugs Ahead



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.
