Default More Bugs

I recently went to Orlando, and caught this guy behind my Brother-in-laws house, on a pond... A Halloween Pennant, I think..

Quite a poser this guy!! Good catch this one, Hawgwild.

#1 is just beautiful with very special, tender and mellow colors and great lighting!

Well done!

Bloody outstanding. What a couple of great shots. Having spent a few hundred frames all for nothing I can really appreciate what you have shown us here. Come on, tell me its dead and you just stuck it on there with crazy glue.

Lovely first shot personally I think I would have cropped both top and bottom down a bit as I think it would draw your attention more to the main subject.

Thank you, Walter. I love shooting insects, but there are many ways to show them, and I choose to show them in their natural surroundings, not neccessarily in true macro. But that's just me...There are many on here who are very talented in this area, and I have tried to learn from them, and I am very pleased with some of the results. Thank you again.

Robert

What can I say? Of all the people here at Steve's, you are sometimes the most brutally honest, and for that reason,(among others), I value your critiques very much, good or bad. Some of us are here to learn how to make a decent photograph, and you are always willing to do your part. Thank you very much for that...

Oh and yes he was killed and glued to the stick LOL

Hi Pastieman, thanks for your thoughts. I did another crop, but at this point it is eating up the pixels pretty heavily, but here goes. Is this what you had in mind?

Very nice Hawgwild. I like your first one as is. As a macro, you look at details, as you presented, I see a lovely shot.
