I know what you mean! Look at this skipper i photographed, and on editing the pictures I noticed the crab SPIDER sitting right there on the flower with it in pic 2! http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/384...

It's so much fun to discover things on the pictures when looking at them later. Sometimes I'd kill to go back and take more pictures of a bug and it's newly discovered beauty... It kind of gives us back some of the magic of the analogue times, when revealing was a surprise.

Thanks Agustin! I did not realize it had something in its mouth when I took these!

Lovely, seems to be feeding happily.
