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.

Week 34 – Robin

WalkingStick One of our Florida insects. A female twostriped walkingstick. Anisomorpha buprestoides, also called devil’s riding horse, prairie alligator, stick bug, witch’s horse, devil’s darning needle, scorpion, and musk mare. LOL! This one was about 2.5 inches. Ick! They can spray stinky poison if disturbed. Nothing beautiful about this lady. 🙂

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.
