Default Missed opportunity....

I shot this discarded shell of a grasshopper. Only after I got home and looked at the photo, I realized that the owner of the "skin" was right next to it and I didn't see it!!! Would have been interesting to shoot from a different angle...

Interesting how he wriggled himself out of the shell yet left it intact?

It's always amazed me the things I "miss" when photographing only to see more when I look at the picture.

If you want to "see" something amazing - watch Brain Games on the National Geographic channel. They have some really interesting facts and examples of how our brain interprets and processes things we "see".

I agree, how do they shed their shells so perfectly? Well caught saly.

It really is amazing...I watched my tarantula molt a few months ago. 8 hrs and the old skin stays intact, legs and all.

That's cool indeed.
@ Clint, watched Brain Games last night, it is amazing what we miss in plain sight.
