Euch! Dying Cockroach - processed and posted exclusively for the PhotoFriday "Gross" challenge.
To think I could have taken a photo of 12 bunches of a dozen roses, or someone's paycheck before the Goverment took their slice, or some political satire of Gross Incompetence... it ain't always pretty.
Taken for the PhotoFriday 'Symbol' topic. The equipment behind the glass is a Telequipment D83 CRO (Cathode Ray Oscilloscope) that still gets permanent residence on my desk despite being rarely used. It's a geek thing, I guess :-)
In a patch of scrub recently burnt out a colony of ants on a tree trunk encourage their mates to burst the pinata - who oddly, seemed unpeturbed. Taken with a homemade diopter attachment on a Fuji S7000. Placed 7th in the Fujimugs "Festivities" Open challenge.
