    Or a banana slug in the grass that looks like a sea serpent... Ok. Maybe I didn’t get enough sleep last night.

    Thanks. I shot it with a D200 and a 105 VR while laying in the grass, using my elbows as the tripod. 1/50 sec, at f/16 ISO 400.

    Seeing the picture of your "Grass Serpent" made me laugh... It showed me that I'm not the only Oregonian who takes pictures of Slugs! Thanks for making me feel a little less crazy!:biggrin:

  6. Great shots of nasty looking creatures.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment kiankheong and Arcinio :smile:

    Well, it was the only activity in my yard that day, and the series came together with captions after I saw them on my monitor. Got to see a little humor in these pests. :biggrin:
