Terrific close up of the compound eye and thorax - the wings add movement too.

Hi Ian - Thanks for the comment/vote!

I have it on a loan basis from Awesomeshot (Cheers Tony), but I would highly recommend it. Hard to use as slightest of movements means a well out focus shot, but you can get some great detail on the ones you dont delete!!
