Expressions of Purple
Here's Lookin' At You
Took this closeup of some clover, then realized something was staring at me!
Looked like a harmless tiny, little cricket until it came face-to-lens with my camera. Then it looked like a bulldog defending its territory.
rose petals with dew
I have no idea what this critter is, but it was really tiny. Almost didn't realize it was an insect until I saw the eye. It looks like it just crawled out of the primordial ooze!

This one kept landing, taking off and landing again on the same little stem, and I still had trouble getting a shot of it!
If anyone knows what kind of insect this is, feel free to enlighten me.
