The "Alien" just didn't look right with a matt black background, so I reshot it with a grey card. I think this looks much better. This time a 3-frame macromosaic:

Hi Greg,

I agree. The grey card background looks more natural - the black card looks more studio set-up (if you know what I mean :)).

oh, now now now, Cybermystic. I thought you were doing good in the gross department, scoring 10's. with the black, now you have stepped it up a notch..with this. Truely a whole other level on the
ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwe scale.
this obscene little shell of a pupa, deserves a 10+...because it is a great shot, and realllllly ugly. ( in an alien way)....yeah that slime moss stuff sliding down his arms just about does it for me...lol..sheesh. Ick. Great capture....and did you know that...

Ducks eat these.

great work, as always, love to see what you post...

Hi Alex,

It is the old larval casing of a dragonfly - the dragonfly itself came out of the neck region.
