“i…i…i feel so empty inside”

the power shot is on the ready for any cool bugs or cute dogs.  so….here is the shell of a locust outside our office front door:

when i was a kid we moved into this boring house that had the coolest tree. i would climb it every day and i loved it. loved it.  then, one morning i went to climb that tree and there were about ten of those locust shells…

and i completely freaked out.  i never NEVER never climbed that tree again.  and now?  now i’m like “yaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!”

so, in case you don’t know how to take clear close ups with your power shot point and shoot camera because you find auto-focus does’t work up close:

you set your powershot to MANUAL on the dial, then you press the “flower” icon on the menu selection on your screen.  then physically move the camera to the focus you want, press the button and center the little green digital box on your subject and CLICK!

Isn’t it funny how we both have gone from being frightened in childhood by these ghostly shells to “Yea! Something cool to photograph!” as adults?

What’s that saying, “People who are bugs made out of glass shouldn’t throw stones!”

The first time I ever saw a cicada skin I was a little nervous about it. Luckily, my brother was there to explain what it was.
