Challenge has finished
In this challenge, let us see photos of true bugs, (Order Hemiptera), showing off their interesting shapes and colours. Bugs typically have diagonally-crossed wings, and a proboscis for feeding. The bugs must be outside in their natural environment, on leaves, flowers, trees, just doing what comes naturally to them, not inside under studio lights. Macro and close-up shots welcome. Refer to http://bugguide.net/node/view/63/bgpage for more information on bugs. (No Beetles, order Coleoptera, they have had their own challenge already. No spiders, bees, flies, etc.) Size: MAXIMUM 1,600px on LONGER SIDE.
