Photo Hunters: Tiny



Wingnut, my 11 year old grandson, took this photo of two Japanese beetles "battling over food." He captured amazing details and color (please click on the photo to see it full size in a new window.)

  21. I think I agree with gattina! Look at their little striped bellies. Who would have thought they were so colorful. He is doing a great job with the camera. I love nature shots!
