Kosta, aka pitsaman is good at taking pictures of insects up close. I know because I work with him and he's always bringing these photos to work to show me! I'm glad to see he won, he's very creative in his photography! text

This is incredible. So clear and so macro. :) Love it. The border is perfect for this shot. Well deserved first place.

Call them all back in for the Insect challenge?

Outstanding capture. Focus and depth of field is excellent. My favorite of the challenge. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Awsome macro. It really fits the challenge also because it looks like he's drinking water because it's hot outside. Great job cropping as well... there's just the right amount of water in the shot, and the bee/wasp is positioned perfectly. 9.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2003 11:21:07 AM
Wonderful macro shot. Great focus, color, etc. I guess even these guys need a drink when it's hot, huh? Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2003 06:52:55 AM
Superb... my favourite this challenge and only 10. Great detail, saturation, sharpness. Interesting composition and textures. This should get a ribbon... but maybe people have seen too many insect macros recently? I hope everyone has an open mind...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2003 10:18:43 PM
SUPER JOB! The colors are fantastic, it works!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2003 09:46:25 PM
Nice close up. I wouldn't have gotten that close to a bug like that. :) Well done.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2003 12:21:35 PM
woww. superb macro.. i dont know if i can see a "season" in the shoot.. but nice pic.. =)
08/20/2003 10:53:46 AM
Excellent all around. None of the other insect shots have grabbed me but catching him drinking like a dog on a hot day is great. 10. And a ribbon I\'m sure.

I think this is my favorite all time DPC photo.

An excellent bug pic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2003 12:24:50 AM
This is a great capture. The fuzzy border is a little bothersome, It looks like you might have given this a border and then re-sized the image. Try sizing first and borders last. - Nice work 7

I love this photo and will leave a better comment tommorow. 9 for your great shot
