These are the other insects I took, other than the ant mimicking spider.

The Y bug (my own name) is the 3rd time I have seen this, and there were 3 of them!

FZ10+Raynox250, F8, 1/60s-1/125s, ISO50, 2 diffused flash

#1: Y bug...so named (by me) because it looks like a Y. Anyone know its real ID?


#2: Its quite flat


#3: Leafhopper


#4: From the top...love the translucent look

great shots, but love the first one best, the camouflage seems to make it transparant

You make it look so easy. I've tried the250 andcould not focus itand gave up for a while. I'll pick it up again one day and see if I can get some shots but don't hold your breath. It's a hard lens for me.

I remember older photos of this from you.
I am not an expert but maybe a species of Coreidae (Hemiptera) some of which have the 4 segments large antlers and a kind of trunk bent beneath the abdomen.
Great photos.

Found this photo with Google

Thanks sven! I use 2 flash. One on the hotshot, and the other handheld.
