I finally got a nice shot of a bug! And he's eating lunch! Ain't that cool? Very little processing at all - pretty darn spiffy out of the camera. A bit of a crop (maybe about 3/4s of the original or so), duplicate layer in soft light blending mode, sharpen and resize.

Nasty little buggers! My lilies hate these beasts! Very nicely captured, great colours and I like the composition :o)

Awesome macro!! Wow, that bug is red. I love that he left that tip of brown on there, no out of date food for him, lol!

LOL he looks like he is hanging on to that blade of grass for dear life! :) I love the red on the green though. Perfectly complimentary.

That's a cool capture of lunchtime, and great DOF. It reminds me of The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle.

Wow he's one hungry bug . .

Obviously that leaf is to him what Starbucks is to you - he just keeps having to go back for another ;- )

Nice colours and nice composition.
