Alien At My Door

    Newer Older

    So of course I invited it in for a photoshoot.

    I'm posting two images that initially look the same, but have enough differences to make it hard for me to decide which to post, so you get two to study. This one shows the other wings folded over, and the head at an angle that shows two white ridges.

      Ups, weird bug -- and amazing details. I personally prefer the "folded wing" version.

      What a ripper! In less Australian colloquial, the details on your captures are remarkable.
