A visiting bug

Yesterday at work this guy came into the shop for a visit and posed for me as I took a few pictures. My friend Mike spotted him and called me out to where he was waiting to have his photo taken. So thanks to Mike and thanks to the bug for these great shots.

When I went to pick him up the little bugger attacked me, I think he thought he was going to throw me to the ground. I gently walked him outside and showed him where the sunshine was. . . all the while he had me in a death grip.

I just love these. He is almost posing for you in the first image. On second thought, maybe he is just planning his attack! Beautiful little guy. Super cool images!
