14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Wheel Bug on a Leaf
While photographing butterflies along the Northern Chesapeake Bay, I noticed a wheel bug perched on a leaf. These bugs are unusual looking with their coat of armor, including a prehistoric looking "wheel" on their back. Intrigued, I snapped the shot.
