    Thanks. These are called Bagrada Bugs and native of certain parts of Africa and Europe. They were somehow introduced to the US about 5 years ago and started reeking havoc among the farming community.

    Creepy but yet a very good shot. Very sharp. I get the shivers looking at this. Bye.

    Good find. They seem to be making short work of that plant. I hope they find a way to control them.

    Nice closeup. Use of a polarizing filter would reduce some the glare coming from the insects' backs and give better saturation.
