I got bugged...

...this critter flew into my arm yesterday whilst I was at a BBQ in a park with friends.

It seems to be a problem species inasmuch as it destroys trees.

I had the 12-40 on my E-PL5 (E-M5 is with Olympus as the batteries weren't making proper contact - I had to push it all the way in for the camera to power on. )





Bug ugly!


David.

A positively EVIL looking bug David but brilliantly sharp shots. Hope you don't have a wooden arm ...

Yes, evil is the word! Nice shots though. The 12-40 does do a decent closeup doesn't it?

Pretty menacing looking, I particularly like the close up.

I'm sure I've seen that one on Dr Who.

Fantastic macros especially that last shot. That is a cracking lens.

I'll go out on limb here (pun intended) & say I like the look of this beetle.

Nice shots.
