Wordless Wednesday – Windshield Rider

This little guy rode on my windshield today for over 30 minutes right at eye level. Creeped me out and fascinated me at the same time. I finally had to pull over and take pictures.

The first picture is a little blurry because he started moving. The second picture I boosted with Picnik.

  2. Ali

    That is gross! I’m glad I don’t live down South!

  3. love the perspective of the first one! looks like a MONSTER big

  4. Sam

    Ewwww…that would freak me out.

  5. I guess he needed to cool off with a little convertible ride.

  6. I got a giant cricket on the windshield of a semi truck once. It was cool because it was OUTSIDE. It wouldn’t get off though! LOL

  7. That is SO crazy!! It would’ve creeped me out & I secretly would’ve wished him to fly off!

  8. I bet that was the longest 30 minutes of his life lol! Love the shot!

    What IS that? I had one on my sliding glass door the other day & had never, ever seen one before but it looked JUST like that! I live in the desert so we don’t get a lot of things like that, mostly just spiders & scorpions. That jolly green giant was a welcome change.

  10. Yikes! I’m not a fan of bugs, but those are some GREAT shots!!

  11. Love the 2nd photo of the bug. Too cool. Stop by and link up at the Zoo we’d love to have you !


  12. Little guy? I probably would have crashed the car if I saw that huge monstrosity headed my way! Seriously, that first photo really made me jump – I guess it was the angle but wow, he looked HUGE!

    Good thing I don’t have a bug phobia or anything, lol.

    Happy WW to you! Come link up!


  13. Woah! I literally jumped back from my computer! Thanks for the linky!

  14. Nice of you to have saved the bug! I am sure he appreciated it!

  15. That is a great picture! I had to look twice!

  16. That’s some hitchhiker you picked up! Love both shots, The first one reminds me of the asian monster movies, the second one is like a 3D image. Super cool.

  17. Ha. Poor little fella. :o) Great shot though!

  18. NYC SingleMom

    okay officially freaked out!!

  19. What a great picture! We had a bee these days on the windshield, too.

    Greetings from Germany

  20. That first shot looks like “attack of the giant bug”!

  21. It looks like summit out of a horror film and looks as if it’s in the middle of the road lol

    Have a great WW! and thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

  22. Lol when I opened this on my phone I thought it was a giant bug. It startled me!

  23. That has to be about the best picture I’ve seen all day!! I have no idea how you drove with him staring at you lol

  24. Stacey Nerdin @ Tree, Root, and Twig

    I’m getting the shivers just looking at the PHOTO! I’m not sure I would have driven that long with it on there. Yeesh! And I might have been tempted to tap the windshield wipers, but that could have gotten messy. {bleck!!}

  25. Anjanette "Momma" Young

    Bugs are so gross but I’m impressed that he stayed on so long! His own version of surfing I guess! lol

  33. Cool, attack of the gigantic killer grasshoppers. lol
    Thanks for sharing and linking up at Tots and Me.

  34. I can’t believe it hung on for so long. It deserved a photo shoot after that!

  35. Allison

    How cool! I LOVE the second picture. The green is just amazing!

  36. Elly Filho

    I 2 would be creeped out .. but what an amazing photoshop on the second photo, are they the same photos? or was it a completely second shot that you edited it?? either way Great Job.. God Bless

  37. WOW! That is pretty cool! You had to be fast on that one!

  38. Love the picnik version! So distracting, though!

  39. Wow, I am glad you decided to take these cool pictures instead of using the windshield wipers!

  40. Deborah

    Great photo! He was just sight seeing with you.

  41. Yuck. That would have freaked me out also.

    I’m kind of surprised he managed to hang on that long.

  42. Mom Blog

  43. Are you kidding me? Those pictures are AWESOME! I can’t believe how bright colored your new “friend” is…gorgeous! (In a buggy way!) Thanks for the link. πŸ™‚

  44. I can’t believe he hung on for that long or that you could drive with that in your eyeline for that long.
    Those are great photos, I LOVE taking photos of insects, especially grasshoppers. We have some really cool looking ones here in central FL with fuchia bellies. Now THAT would have gotten your attention. =)
    Have a great week.

  45. Ewww!! I would have felt the same, creeped out, yet fascinated! The first picture almost looks like there is a ginormous but in the road!!! Ahhhhhhhh!! LOL!

    Aloha! Mrs. Marine
    & the Tiny Troops

  46. I had exactly the same thing happen this week. I just didn’t have a camera handy.
    Well done. Happy WW.

  47. Carolyn G

    Have a terrific WW. πŸ™‚

  50. Thanks for coming by and linking up =)

  51. Great picture! Looks like a creature feature.

  52. I love the 2nd photo! It would creep me out too if he was right in front of me at eye level even if he was on the windshield.

  53. Kris@The Elder Care Resource

    Wow! Great shots! On your first shot, it looks like a giant grasshopper passing on the road. And on the second shots, you got it perfectly right! Mr. grasshopper just wanna hitch a ride! πŸ™‚

  54. ewww. I so would have tried to get it off for sure!

  55. Omg, that first pic looks like something from a horror movie…a 15 foot creature!

  56. They need rides too:) Geico looking lizard caught ride with me to Walmarts.

  57. Yikers! he does look huge in both pics. looks like a katydid bug? I hope you did not cause a traffic jam trying to snap its pic! LOL.

  58. That would freak me out a bit too. Neat though

  59. love how you boosted it with Picnik. I never tried this app

  60. That would’ve bothered me no end until I could get it off –but not before I could get a shot of it! Cool capture! =)

  61. That guys is creepy! He looks like a leaf! Aack. How in the world were you able to drive with him on your windshield? I would have had started itching just thinking about him crawling around. lol
