Like chicken

My bug pictures these days have sort of been like trying to make yet another chicken recipe. It might taste OK, but it's still chicken, and how many times a week do we want to eat it? So what follows are shots of bugs I've shot before, and will probably shoot again. I've tried to make them look interesting, including the use of some Picasa filters. Like my chicken recipes, some are better than others, but it's what I am bringing to the table today.

Gray Bird nymph

green summer mantid nymph
A little mantid trying to pretend he's invisible.

"A lotta" Bagrada
The Bagradas are back. I didn't see any last year. Well, not here, anyway. I think I saw some in the desert last year.

Eucalyptus Leaf Beetles
Eucalyptus leaf beetles mating. Their shells were so pretty. They looked like glazed ceramic.

Caught this one laying eggs. That was pretty cool.

I wish I could go somewhere new and find some bugs I haven't seen before, but I don't know when that's going to happen. So until then, it will probably be "chicken again" for the foreseeable future.
