A Leaf bug I found at my office, I liked it more with the wings spread, and decided to go for the "autumn" look instead of a rich green look that the original photo had.

This is my second submission in a long time, I have been playing with lighting lately, this photo uses 2 flashes, one for a big backlit leaf (background) and the other to side lit from the left the bug.

The angle at which this was shot shows all the details of the bug and makes for an interesting photograph!

Good presentation of the camouflage effect; lighting and DOF used effectively to make a somewhat subtle and interesting photo.

nice macro. like the background texture the leaf(?) gives. some of the details of the bug appear to get lost in the upper portion. - 7

Interesting shot. Good colors and lighting. Maybe a little soft on the focus but a nice image overall.
