Fantastic macros, Carol. Long re-curved whip like antennae, bulbous eye, double striped leg all well captured in V1. - Raja.

I wonder if it is as large as the ones we have here in Texas Wink

I held one on the palm of my hand once and cannot forget how it almost hurt when it pushed off - they have some powerful back legs.
