Lean Mean Decal Machine

Yes, this qualifies as a "change of pace" for me, but while capturing that yellow flower you saw yesterday, I spotted this really cool looking bug on an adjacent plant, at first he looked like he was trying to steal some Slazenger tennis balls from that bunch to his right. But, I looked closer and noticed that he had a really cool "Darth Vader-like" profie on hs back, and some totally awesome Incan or southwestern jewelry kind of markings going all around his side flanges. I couldn't resist... i was going to keep this image for myself, but I decided to throw it in here today just for fun . You have to admit, he's pretty cool looking. If anyone knows exactly what kind of bug he is I would sure love to know.

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
