Wednesday August 10th 2005.

A very different image for me. I have been looking at the macro work of Judith Polakoff recently and she has inspired me to dust off my 100mm macro lens that has not seen the light of day for a few years.

This is a sowbug. Sowbugs are crustaceans more closely related to lobster and crayfish than to insects. They are about the size of a finger nail, are harmless and live on decaying vegetable matter. This is one of a number that I occasionally find lumbering across the floor of my laundry room.
