Good close up. Thanks for your comments on my bee shot. You mentioned you were going to put a macro shot on your wish list. I got my zoom/macro lens very cheap. It's not that dependable but it was about $140/70. With patience, however I have been able to get some good results.

Super detail. Love those lacey wings. Good luck with the "cat" story. I can only say, you must breed cats with extremely large paws!

I think an insect on a flower is one of the most difficult subjects to photograph. First of all, since insects, Thank God, are small, in order to fill the frame, close-up focussing is required, restricting the depth of field. Secondly, (a) insects move. And, secondly, (b) flowers move. (Now, I don't mean that all flowers have this triffid trait, rather that, au naturel, all flowers move in the wind.) This movement means fast focussing is required. In other words, in my opinion, focussing on an insect on a flower is very difficult. Furthermore, I think that this is an understatement.

I think you have coped very well with this difficulty in this photograph.
