O.K. Dear Readers. Now bear with me on this one. Today as Ken was out at a meeting and Yumiko was at school, I traveled the short distance to my favorite pond to see if I might find an interesting bug before it gets too cold. I slogged around the wet grass and lo and behold there was a big old fly sitting on a leaf. I carefully set up my tripod right in front of his little face and looked through the view finder. At first I wasn't sure what I was seeing, but as I looked more closely I could see this little guy sticking his tongue out at me and then bringing it back in again. Well, I just had to capture this on film - or is it pixels?
Take a look from top to bottom. (Click on the photo to get a real good view.) The first photo is the fly in profile in the spotlight- no tongue per se. Then the rest are front views with his tongue slowly coming out and then back in again.
How's that for your National Geographic lesson of the day?
