    I went out on my back porch tonight and I found this guy. First time I've ever seen one that's just come out of its shell. These things are freakin alien!

    I poked him to see what he'd do and he flew away a bit..

    a magnificent creature.

    the pictures are great but teh flash is too harsh. maybe sing a slow sync flash would soften the light a little bit.

    Unfortunately the only flash settings I have are 1/3, 2/3 or full power :\ This was at 1/3.
