wonderful shot indeed. =v=

Moved from ID Request.

so not a nymph... thanks much! I see the barklice everywhere, but this is the first time I've seen the booklice. there were several under the bark of an old fallen tree limb.

Amazing photo!
Kim, this is fantastic. Would you mind if I use this as an example image when I'm teaching? I give talks for the general public and travel to local schools. Of course I would credit you if you are ok with me using it.

be glad for you to!
