I was going through old backup drives cleaning out images to make more room and came across this odd bug image from years ago. Do not know what it is, but it is definitely different looking. Images taken with a Sigma 150mm macro with a Canon 1.4X teleconverter on a Canon 7D. I was also using some fill light in the shadows with a flash dialed down and more diffusion added to the flash head to just give a little more light on the subject as it was under the leaf.
I’d guess that this is a nymph…of what I don’t know. If you want to find out you could submit it to BugGuide.net
That is what I thought also! Just thought it was different looking so I posted it.
Nymphs can be strange. I’ll try to post an old image of an odd old one.
Looks like a Colorado potato bug larva. Not a good one to have in the garden.
Thanks! Luckily it was from years ago and from a different home!
Interesting shots of these tiny critters, whatever they are!
Thanks Donna! It was definitely strange looking! Eliza wrote it looks like a Colorado potato bug larva.
