Nothing like being busy - although a bit of rest is welcome! Love the bug and it's shadow but the lily petal makes a lovely backing for him.
Beastly shadow more like!!! But it does make a good image.

GREAT shot Herman. Good to have you back. This is an amazing macro image. Enjoy the bike race... As a cyclist (and not a racer), I love watching races. Individual or team racing?
