_MG_1337 Its a squash bug!

_MG_1337 It's a squash bug!

Saw this fellow (or lady) on my sliding door and grabbed a camera to capture it. He or she was moving and the camera was handheld. The door was incredibly filthy. I am thankful for the spot healing tool and Photoshop Mama's blurs plug-in! Guess it's after my cucumber plants! http://www.vegedge.umn.edu/vegpest/cucs/squabug.htm

Canon EOS 350D ,Tamron SP AF 90mm f/2.8
1/200s f/3.2 at 90.0mm iso800 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Scary little guy. I love how his tips look like they are florescent (sp?).

What a nice image, Isabel...even though bugs creep me out. I can see how you like shooting them...they do make interesting subjects, don't they?
