I just wanted to share what we found on my rose bushes. Okay, okay, really I just wanted to show off my new camera and photography skills, but here it is anyway:
It's a GIANT, man-eating locust! No, actually it's only about 2 inches long. My new camera has this awesome macro feature where I could literally touch the thing with my lens and it would still focus on it. This creepy little guy was more than happy to be a subject of my photo and posed quite nicely for me.
