... I'm glad you looked in your archives. What a pretty shield bug. can imagine why he's so difficult to spot: Seems to look like a bt of pine bark chipped of.
The first two closeups are equally well detailed and well liit = I couldn't possibly choose.

A very distinctive squashbug - beautifully captured. I was just reading online about this, and didn't realize it was as large as it is!
Love the lookout pose in v2.

Top macros Carol. Extra mark for V2.
amazing closeup! v1 and v2 are my faves but all of them are amazing anyway!
23 Feb 2012 5:16PM
Superb - V2 gets my click.
27 Feb 2012 4:06PM
3 superb macros.
Nice set. My choice is V2. I really think it should be on a woody area where it would be less conspicuous. Well captured. WesternRed.
