Close Up Cockroach

I found this delightful, and thankfully dead, little creature on my patio and in the early morning sunlight thought it would make a great close up image.
One of my earliest experiences of life here in Mwanza, Tanzania, was when I was enjoying a sundowner in the garden and a cockroach ran up the leg of my trousers.
I have come to the come to the conclusion that cockroaches really are rather grotesque, both at a distance and up close.

    Bugs are pretty gross in general. But it’s a good photo otherwise lol

    Ugh !! The photo took me right back…. I did have a very ‘close encounter’ with one, but cannot put experience in print….! One to save for when you’re next in Baldock !

    My favorite view of a cockroach — when they are flat on the back dead or close to death!! Great photo of a gross critter.

    Interesting take on the challenge. And I remember absolutely hating the feeling of their hurried run up my leg / foot too. 🙂
