Green Shield Stomps

By RubberBullets
I'm afraid I've gone a bit version mad today.

The first two I really couldn't choose between. The first was a slightly better composition and background, but too narrow a DoF. No2 has a better DoF but not quite as good a background, though with a bit of cropping and tilting I have given it a nice diagonal.

As for the title I think perhaps just the older members might get it Smile

The other three shots are just for fun, titled Spider Bomb they weren't really up to being a main upload but I really like them.

The whole ball in the first image is barely 1cm acroos so you can imagine just how small these guys are.

Thanks for looking, and for all the clicks and comments for the last few days, they are all very important to me.

It means I've been a member here a very long time. Smile

I did have a looong break in the middle though.

Thanks for all your comments today, I've just realised that this is my 100th photo here!
