Huge thanks to Bear_Music for his editing tips. Regardless of how this does I learned quite a bit about Macro photography and editing. This was taken the day after I received my 100mm macro lens and it was my first outing to shoot insects. A lot of people may hate bug shots but I find them amazing and I didn't realize they were this difficult. Just the slightest movement throws the focus off.

Nice moody bug shot. Never thought I'd say that.

This is an amazing photo and I really want to give it a ten, but since the focus on his face could have been just a tad better, I'm staying with a nine. Lovely picture.
