Default Photo Challenge #131- Buggin’ Out {06/13/11}

Photo Challenge #131- Buggin’ Out {06/13/11}
Photo challenge # 131. I'm so excited to be hosting another challenge. It has been way back since this first started when I did a couple. The challenge this week is to get out there and find some insects or spiders. I love taking macro pictures of insects. I find they are much easier to take pictures of than people because (as long as they aren’t fast moving ones) they stay put for me to take multiple pictures of them until I feel I have the best shot. I never have a shortage of dead bugs to photograph either. I’m a teacher and we do a class bug collection. You just catch them in a Ziploc and throw them in the freezer. When you’re ready just take out the bag and pin them for the collection. We also have Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches for class pets. I started with two and now I have about 45! So I can’t wait to see the insects in your area.

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ You can jump in and start any of the photo challenges at anytime..
~ Again -

My pictures: 1. This picture is a bug I found floating in my friend’s swimming pool. Of course I scooped him out and brought him home to take a picture. 2. I posted this one before but I took it last week while out searching for things to shoot. The red color caught my eye so I snapped a few shots. 3. This is a praying mantis that I shot while he was walking around on the back of my house. It was so funny because he just stopped and posed for me, turning his head back and forth to try and figure out what I was doing. I actually won a contest with this shot.
