Wow, those are some awesome bugs! The color on the first is amazing and I almost missed the second green guy; he blends in so well. I have no idea what either one is--do you know the name of either. They are great pictures.

That critter in the second shot wins the Disney "Ugly Bug" contest! I can't help but wonder what that ant is trying to do in the first shot. It looks like the start of a back one and a half in the layout position!. Great shots.
