This shot I just keep coming back to.
I can not make myself add it to my fav. I mean... it's a cockroach!
I love all creatures, big and small... except cockroaches.
But still, like an onld wound one keep scartching, I keep coming back to this one.
This photo has it all: it funny, amazingly detailed, beautiful colors, nicely framed.

Oh hell, note it down: I just favorited a cockroach. ;-)

Can't wait to find out who was able to make a "cucaracha" look like art! Nicely done. I really like the use of negative space.

You got some great detail here. The bottom leg doesn't seem in focus though, and the red blob on the white background is a bit distracting. 9

Disguuuuuuuuuuuuuusting - and fabulous shot! Did you promise him some poop if he held still? Was this real or a toy? Excellent.

After living most of my life on the Gulf Coast, I never thought I would say, "Nice cockroach picture." Well composed and executed. I assume no insects were harmed in the making of this image.

This is as close to one of these as I'd like to get. You have done an excellent job with your lighting, focus, and composition.

Very funny shot. Extraordinary photo quality on this one. I'd have framed it just a pinch to the left, but what do I know? The detail is incredible - 10

You could also submit this as a portrait. I keep asking how did you get this guy to pose like that. Great background contrast with the bright color of the subject. Excellent detail and sharpness. Thank you for keep all parts completely within the frame of the image.

This is a good idea, which you turned into a great shot! It looks like it is dancing with one leg up in the air. Amazing colors you've brought out there. Definitely worth a 10!
