Have you done something with the background, le a substitution - something looks wrong with the tones. Otherwise sharp and well composed.

Well spotted Paul.

The background was rather a plain Beige sandy colour do I altered the colour balance to appear a nicer green.

I thought it was an improvement on the original

Wow! What a monster!

Do you use any kind of macro lighting?

Yes Katie it's a ring flash which is why there is a cast on the background.

Thanks everyone for your comments

Another excellent capture, one I feel should have had more attention, very nice colour, detail and DOF.
