Wasp on banana.

Uncropped image using a reversed 50mm on some 5 extension tubes. I held the lens on the tubes with some gaffer tape.

I think about f16. Off camera SB900 on manual.

Critique welcome. There's some good detail 'Large'

Excellent shot with great detail and focus, if i wanted to be picky i'm not so keen on the red background, doesn't look natural but that is being really harsh but you did say critique welcome!!
