    Your customary Grand Close-up…. This one is evidently all decked out for Christmas. Is that the fiscal cliff he’s about to fall off of? He probably knows more than we do….. Beautiful creature, well caught, Jim.

  • Haha,yes beautiful Christmas red and indeed he probably knows more than we do…;)

    Hi, Jimmy! This is so much fun – bright red and black, a beetle yet fuzzy, hooks for feet. You really got the colors and details down perfectly! Congratulations on your feature in Insects, Bugs, and Creepy Crawlies – FAVE:>)
