So that's what one of those looks like up close, huh? Cool pic. One of these flew into the car when I was on the border of GA on my way to NYC years ago. We got rid of the bug pretty quickly but it took us the 2 whole states to finally get rid of the stench in the car! It was just rank!

Thanks for the comment, I made sure I didn't disturb him one bit while shooting.

Don't think I could have got any closer without disturbing him.
