Isn't it funny how different people see different things. For me V2 is 'giant alien appears over ridge, run away'....... Another super series of interesting shots of insects I have never seen before.

V2 is my favourite with a very cute face and in V3 his expression changes like he is going to attack.
Have a good weekend.

Pleased to be number 30. The vote is for V2 - direct eye contact and a quirky, quizzical angle. Very engaging.

V3 for me today with the full frontal face and lags everywhere.
Also the yellow lichen is a great contrast for the grey body.

I think they come in on purpose Carol to have their portraits taken Wink A cute little fella, especially in v2 as he climbs up on that limb. Aside from nice detail on the bug, you also have some lovely texture and detail on that lichen.
