Monday

Planthopper

I have a confession to make. I used to be really intimidated by bugs. OK maybe intimidated is not the right word .... how about SCARED of bugs. They really used to freak me out. Not quite so much anymore. I found this little (and I mean little) guy outside one day.  He is about 1/4" long (if that) I took this with the macro lens and closely cropped it so you could see the details. I believe this to be a Northern Flatid Planthopper. He has quite a unique look ~~ don't you think?

Nice work.

Very unusual shape body.
You really get up close with them now, don't you?

I feel the same way about spiders, I get the creeps just looking at one. Might be because I was bitten by a black widow many years ago and had allergic reaction. Nearly did me in.

The planthopper photo is beautiful Kerri! Wonderful color and great detail.

I've seen these but never in such detail!! Fantastic close up.

Wow! This is a great macro shot--I love the detail! I used to be unsettled by bugs, too, until I started looking at them through my camera lens. I still don't want them in my house, but outside I think they are fascinating!

Colleen said...

He's great looking. The picture is perfect.

Hmmmm..... this little guy is certainly an odd little specimen. I bet he is easily passed by being so teeny! :)

Have a really nice Monday Kerri!

I've seen those bugs--they are so tiny I am impressed you got such a good photo. They are cute and I wonder what they eat.

Never seen one of these, wow, what a capture...and what a big eye for such a little dude!

Krista said...

What a cute little bug!!! Great shot, Kerri!

I used to be really wigged out by butterflies but am getting better, bit by bit. :o)

Sarah Knight said...

Fun shot : )
We have lots of leafhoppers out in the yard. They're precarious insects. When they land on you they really latch on.

Valerie said...

If a bug can be described as "adorable", then this one is! Great capture.

What detail on such a tiny bug! Great macro shot!

This wee critter is so cute - it looks like it has a bird's head with it's beak tucked in!

Barb said...

Your photos always give me the opportunity to see creatures closely that I otherwise would never encounter. I love the detail here and also like the texture of the surface he's on.

awarewriter said...
