PAD - September 1, 2006
"Hi, My Namezzz's Stinky"
Although it was a crazy busy day today, I did find time to go exploring in search of a PAD. This little guy was sooooo cute and very bashful. I was alongside a soybean field when I spotted him peeking around a big bean leaf. He dodged my camera running up and down the stems but curiosity or an intense desire to soak up the sunshine would quickly bring him back to the light.
When I was reviewing the pictures I just couldn't help but giggle and can almost hear him saying in an innocent, sweet, 'Redneck bugs life' tone... "Hi my namezzz's Stinky... wanna play hide-n-seek with me?" I'm late getting today's pad posted I know... but tonight's football game and the kids dance afterwards prevented me from getting here sooner. My only regret with this capture is possibly having to shallow a DOF. I would have liked more of his antennae and the other front foot defined... but then again I think to much DOF and he might not look nearly as cute and innocent like.
