I left school very late. Very stressed, as usual. My "down time" is to stand near the car,and at least shoot a pic or two with my iphone. I did have my DSLR. I was not getting much of anything, so I decided to take a macro of a newly forming Pokeberry berry inside the white flower. These are really tiny. I held it up and got a pic. It is in album 3 for today.
If you look at that shot in Album 3, you can see this yellow/brown thing under neath the main berry/bloom. That is the Ambush bug.
He was tiny and he blended in with the stems. They are yellow and brown.
I was so excited to see another one. I plucked the stem of flowers off so I could turn it in the light and get the sun (setting) on the right places.
Then I realized the ambush bug was sticking and killing a fruit fly type thing. Oh wow.
These Ambush bugs have been likened to gargoyles. Yep. I can see it.
As I shot upwards into the sky, I thought of @rach_who. That seems to be her signature shot..bug macro from below.
I got one shot from the other side that shows his "Popeye" like huge biceps/claws he used to hold the fly. Scary dude.
I am posting this on Sept. 18 so I won't wait too long to post it. Thought it was cool. I have to fill in Sept. 13-17 this weekend. And try not to get behind again! Ugh.
