Header Competition # 37 - What is That Bug?

The header theme this week by myself and is "What is That Bug?". Mac,TomDarlaGail's Man and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. Martha is on a break.

I wanted to look at some bugs this week. Here is a Katydid that climbed on my arm.
I loved the florescent green on this Six Spotted Beetle.
Here we are face-on with a dragonfly.
This is a Red Armored Cricket.
Here is a look at a Water Skitter.
I ended up choosing this Black Wasp for my header.

Seeing that bug crawling on you made me shiver.... Even though I am not a 'bug' person, I do think you did a great job...

You captured really good bug pictures. The focus appears sharp on all of them. I really like that florescent green bug! BTW did you feel the earth shake today?
