Wow! (again!) This is just so totally intense. The color is so vibrant and the details are fabulous! If this isn't one of my favs already, it will be soon!

this is righteous. killer textures. : )

thank you to all those who were able to look past the fact that this is 'just a bug photo' and gave me some great comments. to responde to some of them: the background was that color (plants) with sunlight poking through, hence the hotspots. the cocoons were attached to hanging ropes, hence the butterfly was actually this way up. i took a lot of photos in the butterfly house that weekend, they can be seen at //www.langpage.com/2002montreal/botanicalgarden.html

This is a fairly good shot of the moth, but the image seems to have a graininess to it. I didn't like the background color. I don't suppose you could have made this guy do any tricks? :)~

Very good macro shot. Great detail, even down to the little antenna.

background a bit bright, maybe a fill flash would've helped capture his colors. Otherwise a great shot, and a beautiful moth.

I've seen lots of bugs in this challenge, but this is by far the best I've seen so far.

Excellent picture.

nice detail
07/16/2002 10:11:00 AM
The framing works well here and you did a nice job with the DOF. The subject just doesn't get me excited.
07/16/2002 09:41:00 AM
great capture, well focused, interesting
07/15/2002 08:00:00 PM
Amazing! I think this is a great photo - it feels like you could reach out and touch the little guy (or girl).
07/15/2002 07:41:00 PM
Wow, cool shot. I like the altered coloration (assumint it is altered). Especially like the antennia! Cool. 10 Swash

This has such a beautiful texture and pattern to it. Come to think of it...this would be good for this coming weeks challenge. I'm not sure how I feel about the angle.
07/15/2002 07:09:00 PM
very pretty, great macro
07/15/2002 06:17:00 PM

Great catch. Great DOF.
07/15/2002 02:43:00 PM
superb detail and dof. I like the cropping, although I might have given it just a smidge more room at the bottom.

Wow. I am wondering what kind it is. A great shot.
07/15/2002 01:00:00 AM
Nice, sharp shot of a butterfly. The bright spot in the upper right is somewhat distracting though.
