The detail in both versions is excellent, Annette!
Mother Nature has done a wonderful job of dressing the little bug in V1 for a Sunday showing.

Quite immaculate detail in V 1 and Imdid get a good laugh at V 2 ; Chris has my sympathy as if I was persuaded to Sichuan an event, and which is unlikely, then I too would be wearing similar ear adornment.

Hi Annette.
Great capture, but your dust spots need removing, post capture by cloning/spot healing out in your editor, but your cameras sensor needs a quick clean, if you have not dealt with this before, don't worry, if you have a rocket type lens/sensor blower, in a few seconds you will have a clean sensor, just follow your camera's instructions for this process, i do this periodically on my D80 and rarely find anything too stubborn that would require a deeper cleaning session. If you do not have instructions to hand, have a chat with the dealer you got it from or check out tutorials on line.

Your lovely detailed bug looks scary, and
I thought V2 was the "handsome fellow you found in the butterfly corner!"

A corker of a close up of this beautifully marked and coloured little fellow. He may be smartly dressed as you say but he wasn't smart enough to evade your macro lens!Wink
