the Ugly Bug
On my way out of work today I saw these huge hibiscus flowers and went over to take a few snaps. When I was finished, I went to pick up my bags and this Ugly Bug was sitting there. You can't tell from this photo, but his body is the size of a dime. Add the legs and you've got a bug the size of a quarter. Needless to say, I was very sure that he did not hitch a ride home with me in my purse.
