What's with Panny ? Your last image was very jealously(?) sharp. Just like this one. Tongue And not as smelly !

... I'm glad you looked in your archives. What a pretty shield bug. can imagine why he's so difficult to spot: Seems to look like a bt of pine bark chipped of.
The first two closeups are equally well detailed and well liit = I couldn't possibly choose.

3 superb macros.
Nice set. My choice is V2. I really think it should be on a woody area where it would be less conspicuous. Well captured. WesternRed.
