About This Image

This little bug looks like he has a jagged saw blade as his mouth, it looks like he has sawed part of the leaf hes on.He looks very serious about whatever hes up too.

Very cool looking bug Carol. Neat looking saw blade mouth! I think if I had one crawling on me, he'd get a good fling :-). Neat capture! Don

YOu are so right about him looking like he has a chain saw..That is exactly what I thought when I first viewed and before reading your comments. Anyhow, good job. I don't believe I have ever seen one of these bugs.
