Thank you to Cathy, Holmwood for giving me a Stan on my previous picture. Today i have this macro of a very small insect that i captured on a Teazel. I have tried to identify it by looking online, but couldn't find what it is, so Carol or anyone else, could identify it i would appreciate it.

Thanks for the ID Gary, a soldier beetle i have changed the title now

Very well composed and captured. I particularly like the use of negative space.

Glad you got the ID, Mike.
I find it interesting that you have composed your shot this way, rather than a vertical format, perhaps what one would expect, but I like it a lot.
