You like you isolated bug and limited colours. Love it, well worth the award. Great composition, tack sharp and perfect crop. Oh and the antennae acts as a leading line drawing your eye towards the main subject. Well done. Regards

Not very often you have to use a panorama to get all of a bug in shot.....

Love the 1st one Carol, he seems to be hanging on for grim death.

If these antennae were any longer you'd have needed to consider stitching some shots in a panorama, Carol: what an extraordinary critter, but as ever so well captured in fine detail.

V1 is brilliant, as a composition as well as a macro shot. I've commented before tht I like the way you compose these shots for the antennae, this is a lovely example. They seem to be exploring the far corners of the frame.
