    I'm failry certain I saw that picture of the Squirrel in an episode of Banzai! where the object was to see how high they could get the Squirrel off the ground with a fishing rod. It is a very strange show.

    as an accomplished stuntsquirrel, he's stretching of course ! You got to avoid injuries and torned muscles you know. Either that or this is a contestant for the next missSquirrel beauty pagent that struck a glamour pose when seeing a photographer.

    Red face Intriguing Spider has Silver on his Back and Abdomen

    This spider lives between my garage and a big bananna tree; I've since found several more in my backyard and in the elephant ear bush.

    Really cool but kinda tough to shoot.

    Its maybe the size of a quarter dollar coin overall.

    This site has some amazing professional photographs of strange insects, close-up, high quality, and in most cases no backgrounds. The only problem is that you can't save or print a some of the images. (Copyright protection.) Still a wonderful site to the the brain juices flowing!

    You can save them - just press enter after the copyright dialog pops up and at almost the same time right click and you get the image ... yaaaargh!

    Sometimes when images are split into many parts just take a screenshot and edit it in photoshop ... it's longer but if you really must have it that's the way to go about it.

    Hey I just remembered. I visited the Insectarium here in Montreal earlier this year and I took some ref pics of the bugz in there. I decided to zip them up and upload to my ftp. The pics aren't artistic so don't expect much, they are mostly snapshots of the bugs behind the glass so there is glare, reflection and general yellowish cast to all of them because it was pretty dark in the museum. They are still good reference shots as far as they go. The pics are mostly of moths, butterflies, long horn beetles, scarabs and tarantulas. The whole zip file is about 20 megs and the pics are at 640 by 480. They are all free to use (except the tarantula ones ... I didn't take them so I can't give permission), use them for ref or to create art whatever.

    Have fun!
