Thanks Riyazi and John:)

@John, i googled hammerhead worm and think that should be it :). However, the one i shot was like 1 to 1.5" in length only.

cool. perhaps it is just a young one, or one a probably many species.
in school, as far as planarians go, i learned that they can regenerate, if head is split down the middle, it will grow two heads, and so forth...not sure if it applies to your speciman.

a great find either way. :-)

Oh what fabulous shots!

Your first shot of the little grasshopper really is ultra cute, what a little sweetie :D
The fly shot below that one is such a pretty shot too.

Love them all but super cutie wins it lol.
