Great image - so sharp and the complimentary, but diffused, background colours set the subject up perfectly. GrinGrin

Superbly detailed macro capture, as always, Brian. Your customary brilliant timing, textures and tones. The softly blurred pastel background colours in this one are particularly stunning. Top drawer photography.

Lots of detail on this little chap Brian, his eye particularly so. I think he's wondering when he can get away. Excellent image!

stunning capture Brian. I recently tried macro photography and found it quite difficult as the subjects kept moving all the time.
