Macro Monday - Sitting on a leaf

While tending to my garden, I spotted this little fella sitting on one of my plants and I was able to take a few quick shots of him before he flew off.

I think he enjoys posing for a photo shoot. :)

  1. May be he enjoyed to be a model but isn't he a harmful insect like a wasp for example?
