    Bug on a Mirror -- C&C Always

    I don't know how or why, but this guy made it into my bathroom last night. Of course, I ran for my camera, a flash light and my white board. I think his minutes were numbered because he was pretty still most of the time. He seemed fascinated with the mirror. I took lots of pics but I have alot of PP to get rid of other things in the mirror (my camera and such). ANYWAY, I had to share this and wanted feedback before I PP the others.

    Is the PP ok? He is not in the best focus, but the reflection is pretty good and not doubled or tripled like a lot of them.

    Thanks again for your input:

    A very nice alternative to the normal insect photos.

    Thanks, glad to know you think it works. I have more, but have more PP to do. This guy really liked looking at himself. I swear he was grooming himself. He kept using his front legs to "primp" his head. Either that or he was trying to beat the dickens out of the bug in the mirror!

    Nice. The lengths we go to to get dragon reflections and you get one gift wrapped.

    Amazing depth of field. The sharpness of the wings is really nice.

    Thats a cool shot.... I am trying to figure out how to mount a mirror on my bird feeder now. It drives the male cardinal crazy he keeps trying to pick a fight with himself. Thanks for sharing.

    Bobo, VR8 & jamn4ex --you are to kind! I think the Photography Fairies are trying to show me that Henry David Thoreau was right --everything you need or could ever want is in your only back yard.
