Nice shot!

Perhaps it's just the lighting or some shadow effect, but it looks like one antenna is black with a red tip and the other is brown and white with a black tip. And both antenna look like they are coming out of the same side of its head. What's the scoop?!

Nice picture. I love seeing spontaneous garden moments.

Hmm...I see what you mean. I do think it is the lighting.

I may have other shots...I'll try to post them--especially if they shed some light on the issue. :)

Yes, that is one of the things that I love about WG. :)

I've been away too long. I'm trying to check in more often.

Ok, I believe you, it's not an alien. I appreciate your setting my mind at ease. :)
