Saw this big bug belly up by the gas pump. Reckon it keeled over from sticker shock?
I couldn't resist taking a shot of such striking iridescent colors. Poor thing was missing a leg and appeared dead so I flipped it over to see the other side and ended up doing the squeally bug dance!!
It was not dead-- just playing possum!! But intrepid photographer, that I am-- I got my shots! Never fear, I will always risk life and limb for y'alls entertainment! ;o)
