Default Well done, Grasshopper. but tell me...

What the heck is that long black thing sticking out of your face?

Another early morning find as I was coming into work a couple days ago. I wish I'd had the macro lens on the camera but I had just finished taking a few wide shots so, it was the 12-24 or not at all.
I wasn't reall happy with the shot but, I had to post it. I'm curious as to what looks like one super long antennae and one short.



Any comments?

Don't worry about the wide angle, the result is good enough, and using a wide angle for macro work can give great results. (what you just proved)

Only would have placed a bit of blur on the background window.

You guys are a big help ya know that!
Pen you sure your not getting your cows and crickets mixed up?
I guess I never realized they came in long and short versions. I've never seen the long ones before. I suppose Rodney's right, one got broken off somehow.

Lou.... go to your room!
