Yet another bug LOL. But it's striped! OK, so I chose not to do a straight-on shot of the wing pattern, but this angle was more interesting to me.

PP - cropped, levels, increased saturation and contrast, colored body yellower, blurred bright spot in background flower and a few other random bright places, dodged light spot in upper right a little more, reduced noise, resized, sharpened, blurred background more, added border.

Awesome capture, the DOF is superb as is the coloring. The picture makes me feel nostalgia as well as pride in the growth I've made in life. Thank you for such a lovely image. The stripes aren't very well defined so I am not voting on this, but love what you did with it.

I think I would have liked to see him "not on edge"
