movies !!!Unruly Bug Photo Contest!!!

Unofficial Unsanctioned and Unruly Bug Photo Contest!

Yesterday I was thinking about doing this and today we went to the Corning Museum of Glass where I found the perfect little prize! It's a small, 2", red-foiled glass ladybug.

!!!Unruly Bug Photo Contest!!!-p1070408.jpg !!!Unruly Bug Photo Contest!!!-p1070407.jpg

I love to group interesting items on tables for visual effect, and will enjoy this one for the next month until I send it to YOU!

Sage's easy eligibility UNrules:
  • Anything I might consider a "bug"
  • Bugs, beetles, ladybugs, butterflies, damsel & dragonflies, caterpillars, flies, wasps, spiders etc., are welcome, even if you posted them in other threads
  • IDs welcomed but not required - it's a PHOTO contest!
See how easy it is? Contest ends midnight OCTOBER 10, 2010
I'll remind you later, and give you a 10 minute warning!

Note: *Do not feel bad if I'm not commenting on the pictures along the way, but know I will be watching you. If you have any questions, ask.

* Cookiecat having rest of teeth out under general anesthesia; Roger having surgery; other issues

This FREE CONTEST is just for FUN, so go have fun catching the flying things, (use fast shutter speeds) and practice macros (A=Aperture>lowest number + macro/flower setting) on the things that hold still for you!

Since this contest is unoffical there will be no certificate but there will be a cute little ladybug! And probably no Sticky cuz I have no authority! ~smile~

Contest ends midnight October 10, 2010


Go have fun and bring me the proof!

OMG! What a fantastic find! Thanks for sharing and I cannot believe you didn't buy the whole lot of them!

Maybe someone on WG could make some similar to those and auction them on WG!!!

These bugs aren't unruly, but they are BIG.

Cow peas are actually the bean plants which grow black-eyed peas. They seem to exude some sap at the node where the pods are attached. No damage is done by these insects.
