I suggest Life Jacket Drill Every morning at 0600 poolside to instruct the insects how to avoid drowning !

Great work.

Your pool seems to be a magnet for insects, nice shots
A contrasty green & brown duo well captured (V1). As usual they pose well for you - Raja.

They are just jumping in that pool for attention now! Super set. Sylvia

Carol, you consistently produce stunning macro shots that amaze me in their variety. If you don't miind me saying so, I think sometimes they would benefit from a bit more Photoshop sharpening. This particular set is quite soft, not unpleasant in itself as a technique, but for preference I would have crisped them up a bit with Unsharp Mask.

Hi Carol more great shots as ever, well done regards gray.
28 Oct 2011 2:04PM
You would think they could just hop right out of the pool. Good for you for saving their lives. Great images............Sandy
28 Oct 2011 2:57PM
I just love how you always get them to look towards the camera! Wink Perhaps it's their way of saying thanks for you having rescued them... Smile

I agree with this Carol as stated yesterday, also some contrast I feel would help.

A cracking set Carol, if you want to sharpen them further you can use photofiltre which is a free software editor you can download. It is the one I most frequenty use and is easy to use and very user friendly. You can find it by searching for it on google
