Lovely shots Carol,
the velvety essence of the insects back in V1 is wonderful and the "bird on the wire" pose in V2 couldn't get any better! Well done you! Grin

Two first rate macro-photographs, in which you have captured the superb detail and natural colours in this above life size and rather handsome creature. Version Number 1 certainly enhances all the key elements which are needed to produce an image of this quality.

Regards Nathan
These creatures take photographs of you, Carol, with their cameras [eyes]. Look at V2. - Raja.
