Jade taking a look at the cool “bug”
This little guy jumped up on my shoulder while I was sitting in the lawn chair. I had my Fuji X20 with me which has an AMAZING macro setting, it will focus 1 cm away just by flipping a switch. I grabbed a stick to see if he would get on board, sure enough he did! This shot was what was hoping for, since he was in my hand, I could place him anywhere I wanted to. Jade was totally intrigues by this guy, so she stood right there and kept her eyes glued on him. Vinnie, well he wasn’t quite as interested, but he did take a look. There was a huge yard to runaround in and balls to throw, that was a lot more fun!
Bug on a stick
None of these were great shots of the bug, I think he may be a “Praying Mantis” but I don’t know for sure. So here is the best image of the bug, just in case you care.
Ready for my close up Nick
