Plastic bug?

Plastic bug?

That bug was so strange, it really felt like a fake plastic bug put here by some kid to pull a joke. Anyway, I took a quick shot before trying to capture a better shot, but that thing *flew* off (and somehow scared the hell out of me). I wanted to share that shot anyway…

  • It does look plastic until you look close and see the tiny hairs on it's body. Great details.

  • You've captured excellent details here.

  • Thanks. I really think I could have made that shot better, had the bug given me more time to plan my shot.

  • Merci Pierre.

    Jacqueline, la bébête était un peu petite, mais pourquoi pas :D

  • He really seems to be plastic. ;-)
    Love the color... the repeated pattern (flowers)... the detail...

  • Thanks. I would have preferred having more time to work on symmetry on that picture, but oh well :D
