Oh wow, I just found this under "highest rated." No wonder - it's fantastic - great focus, depth of color. The composition is perfect.

WOW!! How the hell did you get so damn close?!! What makes this work for me most is the filling of the background with green.

Super! Incredible! Fantastic!

if that is an unedited photo, which I hope it is, then it is exceptional.

very professional
03/05/2002 10:34:00 PM
Great shot! Great caption!

I think I had nightmares about this little creature... but he wasn't smiling. Nice Shot!
03/05/2002 02:13:00 PM
Great shot! The face is in perfect focus, it really gives you that "hey how you doin" feeling. Is that Jimminy Cricket? Nice 3D feeling.

My favorite - really beatiful, top notch shot. How'd you get that close? Looks like true 1:1 macro. Beautiful.
03/04/2002 02:08:00 PM
Is that real?
03/02/2002 09:50:00 PM

Technically superb -- something that I could never execute.
03/02/2002 10:53:00 AM
Good depth of field, good light, nice shot
03/02/2002 08:37:00 AM
I love this picture! What did the grasshopper charge for modeling?
03/01/2002 11:17:00 PM
nice pic!
03/01/2002 09:22:00 PM
A vertical framing to emphasize the shape of the head and leaf might work. Great color!
03/01/2002 02:56:00 PM
My friend has a picture just like that!
03/01/2002 02:41:00 PM
I love it! He does look as though he is smiling!
03/01/2002 01:59:00 PM
Wow ... this is a great shot! Amazing use of DOF and colour, and the subject matter is great!
03/01/2002 01:51:00 PM

Outstanding detail on the bug. Would like to see more color in the image, but I guess you can't quite direct an insect :)
