    You've clearly got some high-level bug shootin' skills Bobo...

    Not sure about those last 2 bugs though, as they don't appear to be
    having a very good day..

    I particularly like the lower 80% of your last image..it seems a very
    simple, but relaxing image to look at. The color bar across the top
    doesn't seem natural to the image though.

    Another great set from the master. I particularly like the detail in 3 and 4.

    Thanks Paul, Sharon.

    Thanks Frank - the maters here are Geoff and Peter and the others that post only in the insects thread. They have been helping me along but as you can see from the "eyes" thread, I have much to learn about this macro stuff.

    Thanks Mike - regarding that last one, the original is greenish of course but was just playing around with tints/hues to see what came up. As for 5 and 6, if Geoff drops in he can probably tell what is up. I think those bugs actually live in the the bubbles.

    Thanks Joe. Still a long long way to go my friend. Worst part is my birds are feeling neglected.

    is gorgeous.

    One of those I can just stare at for a long time and the cares of the day drift away in the breeze.

    Not sure about that transition at the top, but other than that ..............!

    A nice selection in the weird and wonderful life of the macro photographer! I love #3; if a caterpillar could be described as cuddly, he would fit the bill.

    In deference to Mike and Donald I will rework 8.

    Thanks Gillie, that was my OTH's initial response when showing her only the tufts, that became an Eeeeek when I pulled down the magnification on the monitor. hehe

    Is is a very beautiful specimen and my only regret is not getting more shots from different angles. It decided to drop into the thick grass after my first 2 shots.
