Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign MckLinky. :) MM started on Sept 29, 2008 - Thanx to all of you for helping make it such a fun start to the week!
He is cool in a creepy kind of way!
That is one creepy looking bug, but a great shot! I love macro mondays it has been really fun experimenting and finding things to photograph!
Is that a cicada shell?????
So Cool! I have them all over the yard, but don't think to snap them. Great idea. I can't find the linky...maybe not up yet. I'm setting up my Macro right now. It's a Catalpa Leaf Landscape. David/ Tropical Texana/ Houston
Ick...which is what makes your capture all the more delightful! :)
all I have to say is ewwww..... :)
I totally echo Colleen's comment. Ewww! But cool, as always.
When I read the title of your post, I thought "Huh? What'd she do, just post a blank post?" Then I saw what you posted and started laughing out loud. Great post and great title.
These are so familiar around here I never thought of photographing them. Way cool!
Great shot Lisa. Hope you have a nice week. Evelyn
A little too close for comfort.- The Tablescaper
Can you help med with the link... http://millasblogg.mcederholm.com/#category35. is wirght... (not http://millasblogg.mcederholm.com/)
This is one subject that you may have gotten too close too. nice shot, icky subject.
Empty Macro Monday it is. Trust my office's firewall to block the picture you posted yet show all 37 thumbnails. The earlier comments have now tweaked my curiosity and I cannot wait until I get home to see what you have posted.
Yikes. You sure got up close Lisa!
fantastic shot as usual!
[...] for Macro Monday at Lisas’s [...]
It is staring hard at you! ;p
As a shot - great. As a subject?...maybe not so much! ;)
Oh my goodness what is that??? Very well cpatured ...
Creepy little bug! Great capture!
OMG! That´s a giant :-)
Oh! A Cicada skin? We don't have them here, but I have seen them in the US and in NZ. Great shot!
Tur ATT den inte är så stor i Verkligheten. Den smälter SÅ Fint MED bakgrunden.
Finally get to see it. That's one great shot!
That one looks a little bit scary. But I love your photo. :)I made a mistake when I uploaded my photo. Can you delete the first one? It links back to you. Ooops. ;)
We have those things here, too. Before I realized it's just the shell and not the bug, they always creeped me out! :) This is a really cool shot, it almost looks like there's salt on him!
Cool! great macro shot!.Something went wrong with my browser and I started all over again but after linking it for second time, I saw the first one. Kindly delete any of the two. Thanks.
cool shot-- I used to love finding these on trees when I was a kid in TX.
I'm grateful for the title of your post. I don't know why that makes a difference; it just does. Wonderful find and capture!
I used to collect those nasty little things when they were empty. I thought they were cool!
hey I maybe a little slow but i want your button on my blog how do i do that? i see others with it...
Icky, but how cool is he??
I really like this one!
Oh, you mean he's not really there? Like my moth and its cocoon? Now I wonder if indeed you can collect those empty bug "costume" and I wonder where he went without it? Oh, too many questions on a stormy day!
cool empty(?) bug shell/skin!
Beautiful macro shot of a "creepy" bug ;))
I was another one who wondered what the heck you were doing when I saw "empty" in my reader, and then I cracked up when I saw the shot! My little brothers would collect those shells from my grandmother's trees when we visited her in Texas many, many, many moons ago and hang them all over their T-shirts to make me scream. Thanks for the warm memories!
Whoa I was not prepared for close up of the ugly bug. Great close up, but I think I'll pass on meeting that one. ;)
Yikes, that may be a little too up close and personal!
Eewww....he looks so "yuckie bah" from this (no) distance! Very pretty photo though (again!)Blogger posted my MM automatically on monday at my blog, but of course it didn't automatically add a link to your mr. linky and now it's closed :( And I had such a special one this time. I found out Macro goes further than little bugs and flowers. This time it wasn't nature at all. Curious enough now? Find my MM here :D And enjoy your wednessday!!xoxo Monica
Great shot of the cicada shell. I just posted a photo of one on my blog for the Scavenger Hunt Sunday meme.Best wishes for the New Year!Lea
