[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I’ve already published a similar photo of this very same bug. The shot was taken in a farm some 12 kilometers away from my town.

I was ready to come back home when I spotted this insect. According to what I was told, it's easy to see this species there.

As for the identification, check Howard’s (marhowie) shot here: www.treknature.com/gallery/North_America/United_States/photo4002.htm .

Excellent capture and well done on the composition and details.
Amazing how this bug blends in with the rust on the barb wire fence.


Nice sharp detail and good colour. Maybe better with the cobwebs cloned out?

Beautiful photo !
Very good DOF, I really like it.

Hi Livio. Greetings from Seattle, Washington, one of my stops on my vacation. I just had to come online and check out your pictures. Great shot of that interesting looking insect. It looks like one of those creatures in Star Wars, with its long legs and elevated body, and very strangely shaped head. Sharp details and good light. Amazing how closely the colors on that bug match the colors of the rusted wire. Well done and TFS. : )

Hello Livio!
Wonderful capture.BG,DOF,POV and composition are perfect.Excellent work!

A great image, the bug is almost camouflaged against the rusty barbed wire (which always makes a great image). Stunning detail, love the bg.
Thanks for posting.

Hello Livio, Yep, this guy looks awful familar! ;-) Great sharpness, colors and detail. So now that he has moved down the line a bit, is he any better lookin'? ;-))
Well done.

Beautiful and interesting shot for this strange insect ! And the rust wire and insect are same colors... Thanks for sharing Livio.

"Balance", a nice title for this fantastic sharp picture, it seems the iron and insect are of the same textures, nice shot !

Perfect focus. Nice DOF...
