Awesome Photo!
I like how you shot this long-legged beetle ... properly focused, blurring surface really makes it stand out. Well done.

Outstanding !!!
Love the Tiger Beetles, and this is one we haven't seen.

OMG, great beetle and a great photo!

Enjoyed meeting you, Ken.

Thanks for the kind words.
I also enjoyed meeting you. I hope your trip home was better than your trip to the gathering!

Yes, only one delayed flight on the way home, as opposed to one canceled and two delayed!
