Looks like it's asking "what's that big thing with not enough legs pointing a shiny thing at me?"
07/20/2002 05:02:00 PM
Pretty cool
07/20/2002 01:08:00 AM
what might that thing be called????
07/19/2002 01:14:00 PM
Love the title - and the shot!
07/19/2002 08:09:00 AM
do you think it appreciates being called a "thing"? Thats alright... I don't know what it is either ;) nice shot
07/18/2002 11:53:00 PM
omigosh! An alien!....I like it.
07/18/2002 05:40:00 PM
that's one hell of a macro! *shudder* scary.
07/18/2002 04:33:00 PM
Bizarre dragon fly! I know this was a "shot of opportunity", but you needed a wider depth of field for this close. (The wings are too cool to let fad out of focus)

otherwise known as a bug
07/17/2002 06:20:00 PM
seen too many flying insects
07/17/2002 06:04:00 PM
Too many bug photos...
07/17/2002 05:45:00 PM

Man are they ugly up close! Now I know why God made them so small! This is a great shot!
07/17/2002 10:30:00 AM
great detail. i can see the hairs and whatnot, but it would've been a lot better if you had gotten the head of this lil guy in focus.
07/17/2002 10:06:00 AM
even caught the broken wing.
07/17/2002 09:58:00 AM
bug acrobatics - pretty impressive. i know you have to grab these shots as the opportunity presents itself, but the background is a little distracting in the top right, especially since much of the rest is evenly white (except for the blurry leaf at the bottom). the bug is great, could be a tad more sharp i think. -- gr8photos (6)

Excellent Macro! I'm jealous.
07/16/2002 03:36:00 PM
Cool, they sure are hard to photograph. 8
07/16/2002 11:37:00 AM
Nice shot--interesting damaged wing!!
07/15/2002 05:51:00 PM
I'm sure glad he's your Thing and not mine ;-)
Color, focus , depth of field, composition all good. a slight change of camers angle could hace fixed the distracting red behind the Things's left wing, IMO.
07/15/2002 05:07:00 PM
Good capture, focus is soft and the crop is a bit tight on the right side. Over all a job well done. Kee

love the title, and great picture
07/15/2002 03:02:00 PM
A dragonfly with a bite out of its wing.
07/15/2002 01:45:00 PM
crisp and clear, Great macro

Great capture. You could have had a little more focus though.
07/15/2002 01:19:00 AM
Parts of the insect seem a bit fuzzy, but I like how you fill the frame. Too bad the bug had a torn wing. Bugs are hard to catch but maybe a bit different angle too, though I dont really have suggestions on what would look good or not.
