Not my best by far. But I think its drama will help a bit.

Hornets nesting in the armpit of a garden statue. Here is a sentry.

In reply to Stefan (Silverscreen): I have seen hopper's image many times. It didn't have any impact on what I chose to shoot or what I named my entry.

You captured a menacing expression in this shot.

He looks mean. Good composition. The angle helps to give the impression of "you don't want to mess with me".

Looks like someone has been looking through past macro challenges - even the title is almost the same:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/354/120/197846.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/354/120/197846.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' :-) (Could be a coincidence of course)

Anyway, there's nothing wrong with seeking inspiration - but this isn't nearly as good as ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Hopper's picture, which I would have rated 8. It's going to be a 6 for this one...
