Bug - Doing the Hokey Pokey

Looking at this bug I am reminded of an old elementary school song - The Hokey Pokey
What a fun song that was to sing! Even as adults we sing that song here in Blacksburg during Virginia Tech Football games. I pulled it up on Wikipedia and found some very interesting info on the origins of that song. I didn't realize that it was also sung in other countries.
Here is a link to the info on Wikipedia: HOKEY POKEY.
You tube has some cool videos of the VA Tech Marching Band doing the Hokey Pokey also - Click HERE for the Link.
I would love to hear if you have sung this song - as a child or as an adult.

Here is the same shot of the bug - just not cropped as closely. He has Queen Anne's Lace as his "umbrella". Thanks for all of the comments from yesterday .... I got some good laughs from those as well!!

Nice shot up close. I sing this song in my Spanish courses for my first year students....it's a lot of fun and gets a lot of laughs.

He looks lethal! (I sure did the Hokey Pokey - who didn't?)

Dagrun said...

I do agree with you! Beautiful macro shots!

You had me googling this, how interesting the theories are. This song was very popular when I was growing up in England and remains so, although like with a lot of songs and nursery rhymes the words are a little different (sometimes tunes too, I have had to relearn quite a lot with my daughter).

Fabulous photo.
