Small Milkweed Bug Nymph Heading Up!
WOW, CHECK OUT THAT FANCY BULBOUS BUTT!! :D In fact, this Milkweed Bug nymph looks like a crawling orange Christmas tree light with decorative red racing stripes! :D If you look closely, you will noticed a bit of BUTT STUBBLE! :D :D I know, I have WAY TOO MUCH FUN with critters, but gee, this one is soooooooooooooo adorable!!

Bug butts are always fun! Still shocked at how you manage these teeny-weeny tiny critter shots.
