really cool image - love the two legs to the right - I wonder if a little more contrast on this cool littel guy might really make it pop - as it is - it's pretty darn good!

It's like he's holding a bugle. I wish his body were a touch more detailed. The unsharp mask or sharpen filter might fix that. I love how his legs are out on one side and by his side on the other. Well focused and captured.

Absolutely wonderful! Almost looks like he's in mid-dance, smiling. DOF is just perfect. There are a lot of great bug pictures in this Free Study but this one really stands out. Pardon me while I gush ;-)
