A macro that needed a wide angle lens, unusual. It always amazes me just how long their legs are.....Great shots Carol.

I know so little about insects that everyday is an eye opener.
These are superb and although I like the pink & green image with those eyes popping in V1,
I prefer V3 with those iridescent wings on the green leaf.
