little critter

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Thank you so much to everyone for the votes and comments on my lion series, glad you liked them....also a big thank you to Irish Kate for her UA, much appreciated.
One for CarolG this morning.....
Today a little grass critter I captured while we were stopped for a coffee break. I was photographing a little wild flower next to the vehicle and then decided to photography this grass seed head, what a surprise when I discovered this little guy...the size of a pin head....quite impressed with the lens. No idea what this little guy is

He looks like a little juvenile shield bug, Colleen, and how well you have captured him with all the furry detail on his back. Two super images, very well done SmileSmileSmile Carol

Yes, he looks like one of CarolG's little shield bug friends! Wink A super close-up capture, Colleen, and V1 has to be my fave, with a less cluttered background. Excellent work SmileSmile
