One morning at my favorite garden I was concentrating on a pink rosebud in the shade when I suddenly became aware of this camouflaged, armored, rather large and prehistoric-looking character clinging to my subject’s stem! He watched me but didn’t budge as I grabbed a few images – and then I ran him off with a twig. I figured he had destruction on his mind, and I meant to save the rosebud. :) (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/7.1, 1/100 sec., ISO 1000, shade, handheld) Texture courtesy of Shadowhouse Creations.
