Stilt Bug by olivetreeann

Stilt Bug

Ok, so today is my day to be totally uninspired. The neighbor's dog is barking its head off, it's raining, the temperature has dropped, and I attempted to do the artist challenge, but I'm not pleased with the results really. However, I did find a pretty interesting bug hanging out on my bathroom wall, and my tag challenge photo made it into the top 5. I think Mary Chapin Carpenter summed this day up well in her popular song: Sometimes you're the windshield; sometimes you're the bug...
in a million years it could be a jewel set in amber. already has that color.

I can relate about neighbor's dogs barking, but it is a gorgeous day here in sunny Florida, so I can't complain too much ;-) This is crazy, but I just took a photo of a bug today, too, which I'll probably post tomorrow if it turned out. You certainly did a good job with this one!!

Looks a little spiderish to me, but it only has 6 legs, so I guess I am safe! Creep but cool

@pandorasecho Thanks Dixie- oh rats! I caught it in a cup and set it free outside!
@kerristephens Thanks Kerri- this is the kind of bug I don't mind.
@sarasdadandmom haha Terry- he was totally harmless!
@cimes1 Thanks Carole- he was easy to shoot. He was just hanging out on the wall, not causing anyone trouble. The dog was worse- she's still out there barking!

@httpgeffed Thanks Colleen- no it's not a spider and it really wanted to fly away when I scooped it in a cup to take it outside. As far as I know, there are no flying spiders. (Thank goodness!)

Congrats on making the top 5 in the tag challenge...I'm so glad no insects were harmed in the taking of this photo :P

@changingtides Thank you so much Allie- it really is so exciting to even be in the top 5! And thanks for the comment. I am not a real huge fan of bugs, but this one was on the pleasant side, so he became part of 365.

Love the background to show him to best advantage.

He came along to help "inspire" you, Ann. Don't you love his legs? I think that this is one great shot!!

Hey, a mixture of days like that make life interesting.

@allie912 Thanks Allison- the background is totally unplanned. I found him on the bathroom wall, and that's where I took his picture! (I inherited this color when we bought the house. It's not my first choice, but I've gotten used to it.)
@karenann Thank you Karenann. Yes his legs are pretty stilty! I like his wings too.

That is awesome! Thanks for all your Commets

Great shot! I love the bright colour and detail on the bug. Congrats on making top 5 in the tag challenge too!
September 29th, 2011  
nice one

@cvanheel Thanks Cade- and you're welcome!
@alia_801 Thanks Alia! I inherited the color from the former owners of this house and have never gotten around to changing it. It doesn't bother me as much as it used to! And thanks- I can't believe it's my second tag challenge pic to be chosen. I'm feeling very honored!
@steeler Thanks Howard!

Nice shot - the bug and background seem to coordinate well.

@michaelelliott Thanks Michael- sometimes nature just throws these shots your way. I don't know how he got in the house, but there he was on the bathroom wall!

Pam
lol! of course i would rather be the bug that had a life then the window shield which is man made and thus, has no breath of life at all.
