Found this 3-horned insect doing rounds on a flower plant. First time I am seeing such a critter.

Raghu, that is a strange looking creature. That curved horn across the back looks like it could be dangerous.

Thank you, Jerry and Donna. I find my FZ3, though only 3.2 mpixels, is very good at macros if there is sufficient sunlight, and I have managed decent close ups without an add-on lens. For long shots, especially where you need cropping (as in my crow nest snaps), I feel the need for more mps.Anyway,I am glad you like my photos and thanks once again for consistently encouraging me by your comments.

I like it!

Looks like an alien!

Or a bug designed by Gaultier!

Cheers,

Very nice pictures Raghu, very clear and lots of detail. How big are they Raghu? They look dangerous!

Hi RAghu

Thats an awesome looking bug - do you have a Nikon Macro filter lik the 5T ? If so I'd really love to see that lil bug a wee bit closer.

Cheers
