|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Hi all , first I would like to give a large thank you for all of the very kind comments to my previous postings .|
I have tried and tried again to find an identification for this insect , but have not yet found one any help would sure be appreciated. I will post a second image to the workshop of its other side.
greatly offended by my attempt to move its resting place to a better angle for photographing this little guy curled up and died
just kidding of course , it is just playing possum my workshop image is after this shot when it decided it was safe to 'live' again. I am simply amazed that this strategy works for such insect's , having an armored backside , and a soft vulnerable underside I would not think that rolling over and just laying there would be the greatest natural defense , but the fact that it is here and not naturally selected out of existence proves that the strategy has worked for them. as a photographer with an interest in insects I rather appreciated it so readily giving me a view of both of its sides.
thanks for stopping in

I am impressed that you got him to play possum so you could take your shot. I am glad he came good to live another day. Nicely composed and framed.
