I thought I would submit a summer macro shot for a change (becouse of todays snowy weather I really miss the summer) =)
This shot is taken last summer 2006 on my summer holiday at my summer (weekend) cottage. The grass field was filled with these small fellows.

Comments and critiques are welcomed.
Hope you like it.

I love these little critters too! I think the composition and background is excellent, but I really like the way the leaf softens the picture by its 'wave' out of the scene (if that makes sense!)
