|My son saw the pic and said "That's General Grievous Dad!"
I had to Google to see whom he meant...there's a resemblance, 4 arms, 2 legs, wiered eyes etc...kids! All that's missing are the light sabres.
This is a spittle bug. Family Cercopidae. They are gross, especially when they are in Nymph stage all cavorting under a mass of foam. This one is about 2.54cm (1") in length. No flash, just ambient light, 123 shots and lots of patience with some heavy glass. I have a mentor (thank you, you know who you are), hope I did you proud... :)
