    I feel like an extra in Starship Troopers.

  4. This little guy looks like he is still wearing his Halloween skeleton mask. Wonderful detail! I think I'll call him Spike. :-)

    As for Mr. Linky, I put my link there for part 2 of the Butterfly Palace macros.

  11. My first Macro Monday submission.
    Lisa, your bug photos are just amazing! What is it? And how did you get him to pose so nicely?

  12. My goodness, he's a bit freaky. I wonder what he was thinking as you came at him with that monster sized lens...he was probably frozen in place! Wonderful shots!

  16. As always, Lisa, your macro portrait is gorgeous. This guy looks like he's working with you.

  17. Macro genius, Lisa, as usual! I haven't tried my own macro photos yet (other than a few with my parrot, whose contribution was to try to bite the camera). But these pics have made me look more closely at the details in my surroundings - odd angles, neat shadows etc. I hope to join in one day!

  18. You are a genius indeed!!!
    I don't think any of us can ever top that, but at least we're having fun trying! I know I am!

    Lovely shots Lisa! Out of this world!

  25. Hi Lisa, My Macro is up, the Sir Linky seemed to work! I took a soils class the semester I was supposed to take bugs..so I have no idea what kind of bug you captured but he is beautiful in a buggy kind of way! :)

  26. Every week I try to prepare myself for something icky & you always get me to cringe. EEEEK.

  27. Your picture is the stuff of nightmares, I think.

    I'm participating in Macro Monday, so I'll be seeing you around.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow, that is AWESOME, and puts my macros to shame!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great shots, Lisa! I especially like the first one, and I don't think he's ugly at all. I'm amazed at how, when we get close enough and allow ourselves to really look, these creatures that we normally find so repulsive are really not so different from other more familiar forms of life and also how beautiful they can be.

  30. I played and posted it on the Mr Linky List. I've been thinking about putting that on my photo challenges too - let me know how it works out.
    Hope you're feeling better :-)
