Photohunt: Hanging

The photohunt theme this week is hanging. If you watch someone being given a piggy back ride or being lifted in a ballet pas de deux , they will often be hanging on, in order to avoid falling. Below is a piggy back ride or perhaps a pas de deux in the insect world and one insect is hanging on to the other.
Next is the same pair at a different angle where you can't see their faces but it shows one hanging on to the other, a little more clearly.
The last shot shows what happens when the partner isn't hanging on quite tightly enough. That looks like an oopseedaisey to me. I hope everyone has a great weekend. I know what I'll be doing this weekend. Cleaning that dirty French door shown in these photos.

You can find other photohunters on technorati here - and on Saturday at the home of the hunt, here -

eastcoastlife said...

How did you keep them in that position for so long? hehe...

Criz Lai said...

Ok... I'm baffled on how you managed to get them that way.. unless they are errrr... and got stuck together :P Anyway, these are some great shots. I love all of them :)

Nice take on the theme.

Didn't you disturb them?

Theresa said...

Interesting take on Hanging great close ups

Expat Traveler said...

Carver - this is too funny! You picked a great one...

mama meji said...

Very amazing shot!

ancient one said...

WOW...now that is definitely a different take than mine...LOL

SabineM said...

are they hanging or doing something else?
Amazing shots. They must have HUNG around for a while! ;-)

Leslie said...

Great pics for this week - lucky you having French doors! Crikey - I only have ordinary ones.

Last time I had a room with French doors was in San Gimignano, at Hotel La Cisterna...

snap2days said...

Amazing shots, Carver

Judith said...

Uh, mom, I think your "hanging" insects might be mating...

Heart of Rachel said...

Great macro shots of those acrobatic insects. :) It's so hard to take photos of insects because they normally don't stay still long enough.

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. I thought I'd mention that this couple of dancers let me photograph them from both sides of the door. They were very cooperative. That's how I got some of the different angles.

Hi Judith pie, I was trying to keep my literal text family friendly since people have requested that from photohunt since their kids look at the posts with them. I figure most adults would see the sub text but they wouldn't have to go there with their kids if they didn't want to. Everyone isn't as matter of fact with their small children as I was. Speaking of which I ran across the where babies come from book recently and laughed remembering how embarrassed my brother was when little Judith wanted him to read it to her, ha. He said, I think you should get your Mom or Dad to read this one to you. Love you, Mom

TorAa said...

Gloriuos - I'm impressed. Fabulous.Excellent.
What more can a Viking say?

Angela at mommy bytes said...

Oh my, that's certainly a different interpretation of hanging! Cool take.

Rach said...

You can come and do my windows after yours if you want ;-)

marcia said...

Yikes they need a curtain:)

Natalie said...

Those are great...make me laugh!

julie said...

Carver, this is cool! In different angles and varying degrees of the acrobatics :)

Fishman said...

Wow...insect porn?

jmb said...

Great photos Carver, you lucked out with those. I would not worry about the window to much, it will only get dirty again. Have a good weekend.

ettey said...

YTSL said...

Er... actually, Carver, I think you caught some insects doing a bit of... mating! ;D

Sarge Charlie said...

Just like the love bugs in Florida, they fly united......

Sandy said...

Great shot

Patricia said...

=) Very interesting, Carver!

Barbara H. said...

LOLO at sarge's comment -- sounds like something my husband would have said! I think they're probably mating, too. That's an incredible close-up, though.

Pretty Life Online said...

Cool catch for today's theme... Mine's up too hope you can drop by... Happy weekend!

Emzkie said...

ive seen a lot of insects hanging on to each other. i guess its mating season. that is really a good shot Carver, hope i could get a shot that close.. but i cant, my camera doesnt do that quality. =)

Heather said...

Seems you were in the right spot at the right time to be able to capture those. Great Shots like you were a fly on the wall. Thanks for stopping by.

Mrs. Mecomber said...

Looks like a bunch of more bugs will soon be on your windowsill...

Here's my Photo Hunt for the day. I'll bet you never heard of this kind of hanging before!

Dragonstar said...

That one's well different! Lovely shots, too.

Hootin' Anni said...

I see their faces...the one on top has a silly grin while the one on the bottom has a look of disgust. [kidding]

Thanks for the visit. Your photos are terrific and just perfect for 'hanging'.

For The People said...

That is a cool series! You were mighty close!

Ellen said...

Wow, i wonder what those insects are thinking if they see this huge lenses pointing at them..hehehe silly me..

Looking for the mirror on the ceiling?

;-) (nice shots of nature in action)

leslie said...

Those are amazing shots! I think they may be doing something other than playing though. LOL

Suzanne said...

LOL I believe the bugs got to know each other quite well. :-) Nice pictures.

starnitesky said...

Very different for the theme. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Colin Campbell said...

Insex?

Tokenhippygirl said...

Those are some amazingly clear and great shots! I didn't even notice the french doors....

Sienna said...

ROTFLMAO!!

Insects hanging around together.

The photos are so good, the comments so funny!

David Attenborough stuff this, in all nature's glory..Carver!

Oopsadaisy!

Gravity always catches up, sooner or later.

Too funny. I have to edit a bit of the dog stuff hanging here too, and our little colt, sometimes I have the most beautiful pics, then upload them and realise, uh oh, there is something else going on I didn't see, or stuff happening in the background.

Huey said...

Haha nice shots and cute too! :) Happy weekend!

david mcmahon said...

Great series of pictures.

Er, they were only playing leapfrog!

Inland Empire Girl said...

I had to laugh at your comment. I took pictures while camping and everything looked like it needed cleaning!

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. I have enjoyed the comments on this post. Some of you have me laughing out loud. Pam I can imagine where you live, the camera would catch all kinds of pas de deux moments, ha.

2lives said...

quite a fun photohunt, I wonder what these two insect's thinking

thanks for your visit

Baker Watson said...

LOL - Clean those doors. I've had a couple of situations like that where the enlarged picture showed a bit more than was expected.

Like the take on the theme.

I've got a somewhat similar situation for a future post and have to figure out exactly how to approach it. You did well.

Sammawow said...

Wow, those are great shots! Hope that you are having a nice weekend and don't spend time much time cleaning!

♥tnchick♥ said...

Out of the 70+ I've visited so far this one made me smile the biggest! Super short and photo story!

CrazyCath said...

Those are incredible photos! Fantastic story. Your photography gave us a glimpse into "A day in the life of..." (a weary fly!)

Great post. Over from David#'s. Congrats on POTD!

Les Becker said...

INCREDIBLE shots! I'm so jealous.
