“We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics.” Bill Vaughn
I want to be nice to all living creatures and see in each the miracle of nature, but some seem so much less worthy than others. And that bugs me.
And there you have it – the subject for the next 24-Hour Photo Contest as suggested by David “Pommeroy” Sheehan of NYC (formerly from that great Metropolis known as Lynnfield, MA) –
BUGS, INSECTS, BEETLE, LARVAE
OR ASSORTED CENTIPEDES,
CATERPILLARS, HOUSE OR DEER FLIES,
FLEAS OR TICKS OR BUMBLEBEES
and many more!
One Perfect Bugs Me Bug – 24-Hour Photo Contest(c) (for procrastinators!) Pics must be received by 11:59pm EST on Monday, July 9, 2012.
The ubiquitous bugs are everywhere you are– so no excuses – find it, photograph it, and enter it now. Maybe it’s one that disgusts or intrigues you, maybe it’s beautiful, Maybe it’s one you wish never existed. Don’t kill it, enter and if you win first prize (a OFF! Clip-on Mosquito Repellent battery-operated device). No more sliming your skin with greasy bug spray. And you’ll never capture that mosquito on camera again, unless you’ve got a zoom lens and it is biting someone else.
