Man my antennae taste good by right-angle Man my antennae taste good by right-angle
Ok, does anybody know what these little critters are called. They are tiny. This one is sitting on the petal of a daisy!
Being the last picture I am submitting today, maybe this week, I am typed out. This image and the next seven or so, were taken in a five foot area, in a wet ditch. it did not have to be any bigger, I had all i needed. And will be going back if the light returns. When taking the pictures, I had not seen the critter bend his antennae into his mouth. I had no idea they were that articulated. WOW. Even though I decided to crawl in the ditch, I still call this one lucky. I can take credit for composition and exposure, but Mother Nature knows what she is doing. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

I think that's a grasshopper.
And, I confirm, that's a really nice piece. Like a freeze frame (it looks like it's going to jump... isn't it ? Or at least that's how it seems to me).

You were right, that early in the spring he was pretty fresh. i wonder if they go through a really stupid awkward stage like dogs do. Or do they just spring perfectly from the beginning. That may make a funny cartoon...
thx for the comments. your photos are very punchy ! ~ which i like ~
