Brilliant photo Willie.

I like the fact that the colour of the stripes on his neck is the same as his eyes.

They lead you from his eye down towards his body and from the body back to the eye.

Excellent image, Willie. Everything about the composition draws attention right to that amazing eye.

A beastie with a shell, and go-faster stripes? Very cool!

Beautiful shot.. nice colour and detail.
This photographer,Alex Hyde uses a different lens, something like 5 times close than 'normal' one I know... It was MP E- something.... I never take macro, so I didn't pay much attention until I saw your photo. I had a look of Canon website, I couldn't find it, only MP-E65, I'm not sure if it was the same one... If you are interested in you may ask him....looks good.Smile
BTW, thank you for the MOD and helpful comments, Willie.
