He looks like fine engraved leather. Nice shot.

Shellmo said...

He's so intricate - almost looks like he's made of metal! Great macro shot!

Bird Girl said...

That thing is really neat looking - almost like a 'paper weight'! Cool catch, Craig!

Craig: I thought that Joan was the only one who could use that Photoshop program to color their insects. What a wonderful color scheme.

This is a cutie Craig even if it is a plastic one. :)

Craig: Now, I would of never thought it was plastic until the bug lady spotted it.

Neat shot. Interesting to see the color and designs on this creature close up.

Great pic but icky hopper. These are WAY too big to smash so I use pliers on them. They are very destructive creatures. Don't get me wrong, I'm usually one of the 'live and let live' sorts but when it comes to Lubbers, they've gotta go!
