Challenge has finished
In this challenge, show us some of the interesting insects you've captured with your cameras. There are many weird and wonderful ones out there, and this is an opportunity to share your pictures with us. Macro and close-ups welcome. Minimal evidence of humans, pets, or man-made constructions. No spiders, please. The creepy critters should have six legs. If they have eight (or more) they will be fed to the birds! Size of your entry: 1,600 pixels on the longer side.
