    Thanks Bernie, I took about 40 shots, threw out about 39...well something like that. I only post processed 1.

    Congrats on your #2 finish! You must have taken quite a few shots to get such a good result with such a slow shutter speed. (assuming it is alive!)

    Thanks Mepo, but in no way anything close to a pro. Had the help of the raynox-250.

    Very nice capture with great detail and DOF. In my TT

    Good macro. I would have cropped just above the head and lightened the picture.

    OK I'm jealous! You are so lucky to have bugs like that to photograph. Nice sharp shot where in focus but seems in need of 'auto levels' or similar. GL.

    Classic macro, very well executed. Like the color and composition. Hope it really is macro, as I'd hate to meet anything as big as that looks!

    Great shot with autumn colours and lots of detail on the beetle.
Its eyelashes need trimming. In my TT

    Almost passed this image by, but then decided to look at it enlarged. Whoa! Great capture! Shallow DOF doesn't seem to harm this image, as you have caught the most important part (the face) in sharp detail. Top fave.

    Top shot! Not only a great macro, but interesting and aesthetically pleasing as well - nicely composed, with beautifully harmonizing colours and lovely shallow depth of field focusing attention on the head.

    Ugly bug, beautiful shot. In my tt.

    Impressive macro technique and good composition as well. Nicely done.

    The first bug photo I am commenting on. Very well executed. Your focus was good, and at f18 you have the right amount of DOF. Not sure if this was handheld, but either way you managed the slow shutter speed very well. Your detail in the leaf is just as impressive!

    This is what I call a macro. Awesome.

    Very nice tones and colour great point of focus, just not liking the darkened corners, think the tone mapping makes it too much.
