...at least there are no spiders.

The fact that I've pursued entomology for years makes me point out the problem of a crab in your shot, but this is very nice beside that.

Oh dear...why is this a problem? It's not titled Orbit of Bugs. I know bugs too...and realize I included a tiny little crab. Every party needs its crasher you know.

Thanks Don! : D

...blogged...read all about it.

I'm so happy this got recognition. A spectacular interpretation and execution of the challenge.

training the crab must have been the most difficult part of this circus act. Well done! (the cockroach is probably a closet SAG member)

I'm disappointed this didn't place higher than it did. A very cool composition, and definitely unique.

And by definitely unique, I mean something that isn't a Christmas ornament...during Christmas. On a Christmas tree.

Looks like a siesta after a swingers binge (not that I would know!) Lovely and well done.

Quite an extraordinary image. Mystifyingly tiny LAND crab...???
