I am starting out with the dance of the water bugs. They are really some movers and shakers on the water. They are causes the wake with their movement. How many do you see? The little grasshopper was on a golf cart and he was so green with those yellow eyes I wanted a photo. He was about a 1/4" overall in length.
I loved my praying mantis this year. I had the one at home that stayed around until Fall. I captured this one in PA on the side of a building.
I love the way they keep their eyes right on your every movement.
This one had a withered front right leg and it didn't seem to stop him from getting around.
The Cicada was one of my favorite insect captures this year. I told my grand son I could hear it in a pine tree and he spotted it. I was able to get a lot of photos before it left.
