Congratulations...
on a very nice find, indeed. And good images too! Would love to see some for myself one of these days...

 
Thanks
I was surprised how easy they are to see when you actually find an area that has them. They hop around like toads.

 
Wow...I had no idea such a bug exists
...GREAT photos, Lynette.

 
Thanks Nancy,
I had seen other people's photos and had been wanting some of my own for a long time before I found some. They are pretty funny looking little bugs. I'll have to go back there soon since it's coming up on the anniversary and it would be fun to find more.
