This dang beetle was moving way too fast to get many sharp shots! Plus, I don't think it was very pleased with being disturbed. :) Hopefully I'll get a couple of bonus votes for a natural, non macro shot? :D

Very nice, after looking a second time at this, the detail is great and everything about it is pretty good. (bumped from 8 to 9)

Love the colours here, very good detail and clarity as well in the beetle.

Great DOF and crispness. kind of wish the whol body was in the frame though.
