No peace

By jadus      
Thank you for your comments on the pipe smoking cyclist. This poor thing was going about its business in the under growth in my garden when it had a macro lens rudely interrupt. It is Gastrophysa viridula,commonly known as the green dock beetle, only in my garden it should be known as the green honeysuckle beetle because that was it was lurking!

This is a beautiful image - I love the fact you have captured it against the pale area, yet you've left all the dark undergrowth to show just how tiny it is................brilliant! Smile

Backgrounds are so important in macro photography, this takes the concept to another level, very well done.

There's so much humour in your work. The composition and lighting in this makes it look epic.
