She doesn't look shocked enough to have just found herself suddenly half-beetle, IMHO. I think it's more "Oh, picture day. I haven't polished my carapace in days! Drat."
I think she is comfortable with her form and annoyed you disturbed her nest! Yikes! :) LOVE this picture. Your art is wonderful. Can't wait to see what you do next.
Spooky and definately a sight to behold- wonderfully imaginative!
No she is not shocked more like "what you looking a!" Love her.
she's probably had enough of having her photo taken everyday:)very cool.
Very menacing, Lou, love the macabre image!
Stunning and little scaring... well done.
Oh my, I shouldn't want to meet her on the path. Perhaps she is a little displeased to find you has so many legs now when before she only had to worry about two ..... the price of shoes.
