You Capture – Food

27 Aug

Everything I ate this past week was SO not photo ready.  Mostly because I cooked for most of it.  So I didn’t get any pictures of that.

So I decided to go a different way.

During my photo shoot this past weekend, I saw this guy.

He was HUGE!  I wish I had some sort of way to show you how big he was, but he was about as long as my middle finger.

Now, why am I putting him down in a You Capture – Food option?

Because shortly after this photo was taken, he took off with a big jump, wings clacking as he flew.  And was eaten by a Blue Jay.

I was too surprised to take a photo.  You are welcome.

Can we have a moment, please, for the dear departed Jiminy?

      Thank you for the thoughts on the poor thing. I’m sure his little ghost is appreciating it too.

    I’ve been noticing a lot of grasshoppers this summer. I never really did before but they are ALL over the place now!

      Yeah, I don’t know if it’s because of where I am now or just the season, but there have been TON of them that we’ve seen too!

    That’s awesome! And don’t forget insects are delicacies in many parts of the world. They totally count as food pictures, that’s a lot of protein 🙂

      Especially in a critter this size!

    • mrssoup August 28, 2009 at 7:53 am #

      I like to do the unexpected! When I can think of it, anyways.

    Dude, I’m sorry, I just laughed my ass off. Should I not have done that?
