Well, once again, I Never…. I took a look at what this creature looks like as an adult (much more like our religiosa – they’re all weird, if that’s not an unacceptable value judgment), & I’m on the verge of hysteria. The good kind. What a critter. And to think it has yet to grow up. Wonderful image; how about that lighting? I’m impressed.
I’ve found this facinating insect in our garden a few days ago.For this shot I used a separate flashlight that I placed left behind the creepy crawler and made a couple of shots from different angles.In PS I changed the colours to give it a bit of a spooky appearance.Very nice to read that you’re impressed by this image!
awesome,looks like something from the transformer movie…lol
Haha,yes it’s a real creepy crawler!Thanks.
