I actually saw these bugs around for a couple of days before I realized they were alive.   At first I thought they were plant matter; thorns or bristles.  Even after I realized that they were insects, I assumed I was looking at castings of an insect that had molted.

It was confirmed this was a living insect when I saw this guys eating a leaf.

This was shot in foliage, 10 meters from the Indian Ocean in Mombasa, Kenya.

Is this out of focus, or should have this been an f/11 instead of an f/4.5  ?

Super star CrossFit athlete Christy Phillips raising money for CrossFit for HOPE.

This event had athletes from around the United States converge on Washington DC.   There must have been 20 pro photographers shooting the 2:00PM heat which was filled with jaw dropping human physiques.

When you pick up 315lbs together, it is safest to release the bar at the same time.
