Mornin' Steve! I like your composition and the shot has great color..Enjoyed your note also..
What a funny-looking bug. the paterns on the back are shown very nicely in this shot. How big is it ??
I remember your post with Brown Soldier Bug - it was bloody :-) This one is also nice - I like composition at the edge of leaf.
Steve - if you want better macro try close-up lens - it is rather cheap and effective upgrade.

Great capture even with the "perceived limitations". I guess nature does us a disservice when creating similar looking insects that are totally opposite in the benefits (or lack of) to mankind, as in this case. On the other hand it is a matter of survival of the fittest and therefore explains why species evolve as they do.
Great posting, composition and note, thank you.

Hi Steve, we have some predatory bugs here too. I have one in my collection and that too has very spiky shoulder pads. This is very nice shot, nice details and comsposition. TFS.
