Bug on my windshield

September - 2006

To continue with the bug postings, I'm going to move over to an actual insect. While driving this weekend I hit a bug going about 45MPH. Aparrently he has bug armor because he wasn't the smear that you would expect, but was still well formed and just hanging on the window. I pulled over and without the wind in his face he walked around a little on the glass before flying off. I don't know if I should be really impressed of scared. Seems like it might be the start of a bug army that is doing some crash testing to check out their battle technology before they start the invasion. I managed to get a shot of him before he took off. It's a little washed out since the flash went off. He was a darker in color than the photo makes him out to be. Armor Bug
