Do insects laugh at us?

By jwatt
Went for a motorcycle ride yesterday, travelled 140km or so and didn't see anything worth taking a photo of. Got home and found this guy on the antenna of a car parked in my drive. Maybe that's what he was laughing at?

I took about 40 pictures and got 5-10 that weren't bad. Not a great hit rate.

All the time....I know I can hear them, they usually laugh really loudly just as your about to focus and they fly off!

Great effort.....Ade

Great shot. Brilliant detail. Worth a 140km drive i'd say. Good to see you got good ones.
