Silly Sunday images of some bugs and their attempts to make hand/antennae signals! I thought that V.1 looked like he was at the wheel of a car! V.4 has absolutely no idea of which way to turn!

3 superbly-rendered macro images, each with fine clarity, color, contrast, & comp. My pick would be V1. Great work with your Olympus camera...Peter

Another very fine set. Do so like V1 but at the end of much thought, still love that dozy fellow in V3 and the comp is impressive. As always 1st rate detail and colour.
