Eeew is that some type of worm? Yuck! The photo is really cool though. It's so cool looking.

Rebecca said...

You're right; strainer head is always fun. :)

Rebecca - I'm a Canon girl! said...

Cool photos all of them! :)

Awesome shots - the first and the last both made me smile. Very cute.

Nobody™ said...

I don't like the second one. That thing is seriously nasty.

Love your redundant zebra.

secret agent mama—That's really all I shot this week.

hip chick—It's a hornworm caterpillar. Gross, right?

rebecca—The difference in the way it fits on his head in those two pictures cracks me up.

rebecca canon—Thanks!

maggie's mind—Glad I could bring a smile to your face today.

nobody—The white sacs all over it are parasitic wasp eggs. Does that make it even more disgusting?

texasholly—Thanks! I thought it was kind of ironic.

What the heck is THAT thing in the second picture? It is giving me the willies.

vegas princess—It's a hornworm caterpillar covered with parasitic wasp eggs. They are really bad for tomatoes plants—which is where I found the bugger.

I was grossed out by him too, but compelled enough by the eggs to go grab my camera before I cut the branch to dispose of him.

connie—I know it gets the eww factor for content—even I get the willies when I look at it. Something about the image really spoke to me though. I think the shallow dof and softness contrasting with the ick of the subject merries well.
