Coming back to life

Post by louisx »

I put him on a small twig,

3 hours after I decide to shoot the beast.
after 3 or 4 shoot I see something moving at the bottom of the insect ?

Image

at the beginning I think is a worm (parasite) trying to get out ?
very nervous this worm :) the rest of the insect stay dead!
is not a worm ':oops:'

Image

Image

at the end of the day I find him with the wings closed, and if I touch him, the insect moving !
the guy is back to live, a kind of walking dead... :?
