Award Shortlist   

The Great Unknown

By AnneWorner  
Good morning world - something light-hearted coming your way today. The results of yesterday's election was, I think, a step in the right direction for the US.

These are stink-bug nymps (appx 5mm in size) and they will destroy your tomatoes in a hurry. But, they are cute only before they get bigger, sprout wings, and create more generations of little suckers.

Make it a great day, and thanks for looking.

Anne

This is wonderful. They seem to have character, personality. I don't like anthropomorphic reactions generally but I can hear the conversation here, 'Ah come on, you wimps...'
We heaved a sigh of relief when we heard the election results. The best comment I've heard was on News Biscuit - 'Obama and Romney are neck and neck, Obama is leading by a head...'

Anne, no matter how I look at this it is award worthy -- comop., DOF, cuteness (reminds me of the "Cootie" game we had as a kid), color, light, etc.
