TortoiseBeetle

I am strangely fascinated by these little beetles as they seem to possess super power grip strength with little suction cup like feet padding similar to that of a gecko lizard.

Playing with the super macro mode in my Olympus TG-1, I was only looking to capture details of a leaf when, I noticed this tiny green semi transparent aphid on the leaf I was focusing on.

During our 2011 trip to the mini island of Mackinac in Michigan, we had the chance to visit a house of butterflies on display during the summer season.

A little dark as this was shot in the shade but, caught some pretty good detail in this close up of this little insect. This little flutter bug I think was ready to retire for the day as even the wind or me up in its face with my lens did not cause it to budge from its place.
