|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Found this rather creepy looking fellow on my mother's potted persimone tree on my back deck. I don't know exactly what it is, but suspect it to be a "true bug" of some species or another. I have don't some research on www.whatsthatbug.com but haven't come up with an exact match yet! If any bug person out there can help me, i would appreciate it! It is about and inch long.|
Taken with macro setting on fugifilm finepix. Flash did fire. Post-processed using PS 7.0- just a crop and unsharp mask i think.
Thanks for taking a look!

Hahaa nice bug shot! Looking from the shape of its head and the direction of its beak, it may be in the family Reduviidae.

Laurita, great you spotted this.
The dark bg highlights the bug. Great pov too.
Such dof really worked, for both antennas are in focus.
An excellent link, Laurita!!!!
Great shot of this creature. Good POV, DOF, BG and lighting.
A little soft, but otherwise interesting and creepy!
Thank you for this well composed image, looking forward to many more...
