Thanks everyone for the comments. I was quite suprised that I placed as high as I did. There were several shots that I felt are better than this. I'm grateful. I guess DPC'ers aren't tired of bug shots yet. Which is great 'cuz I still enjoy shootin' 'em.

If you want to see what I was aiming for check you my friend Bill Tobin's robberfly. I have a lot of work to do.

Thanks again
Eric

Very, very cool shot. I've only just 'discovered' macro. IMO, this is an absolutely fabulous macro Eric. Well done!

Not so much work to do if you ask me! This is AMAZING!!! I don't see how it could be improved on. I'm surprised it didn't ribbon!

Congratulations from one of your ten 10's. I think this should have ribboned. Hopefully you post some more detail about the making of this wonderful capture.
