Assassin Bug

These guys are everywhere.  I hear they have a nasty bite.  Looks like this one is missing part of its front leg.  Shot with my Olympus at a respectable distance.

Future Frog

The ditch in our front yard is full of water from all the rain.  Amazing how fast the tadpoles appeared.  I tried to take a photo of one with back legs but they would not cooperate. Put my Olympus TG-4 in the water on microscope mode.  Cropped and sharpened. Settings were f3.5, 1.100sec, iso800, and 10mm.

Grasshopper with a single antenna

This little guy did not like me taking his photo.  Every time I tried to get a shot of him, he would move around the chain link to hid his face.  This was the only one I got with him looking at me.  Didn’t realize he had one antenna until I brought the photo up in photoshop.

Boost contrast, sharpened and cropped.  Shot with my Olympus TG4.  Really need to get my Nikon out 😦

Settings were f4.9, iso500, 1/400sec, 18mm and microscope mode.

Bracing our self against Hurricane Irma

The wind and rain is pounding against my hurricane shutters as I type this.  Posting while I have power.  I feel for the folks on the West Coast.  They are getting pounded harder than I am right now and we are getting pounded pretty hard.

BE SAFE!!!!!
