I was double blessed (well, there was really more than just these 2 recorded ones) this past week. On two separate occasions I got to encounter both Red Velvet bugs and Horny toads. These had been on my wish list to photograph for some time. On the first occasion, I brought each of them respectfully back to my home and put them into a little portable light box and set up some small electronic flashes. On my second encounter I was traveling lite and carrying just my little walk about camera, the Nikon D7000. The little camera has a limited macro range, but enabled me to record both of these little blessings.
Be more than double blessed on your journey†††††nada te turbe†††jim
