    Awesome picture of my favorite kind of bug. I have those guys all over my house in the summer, I think they're the only pets I can have without sneezing. The color patterns on the tentacles are amazing.

    Great shot. I like how you captured it balancing quite happily on the tip of the leaf.

    thanks for all the comments. I usually take two or three. When I first started macro, it was more 20 shots and even then i was lucky if I nailed the DOF and focus.

    I love all the detail on the bug and on the leaf. I like how he's balancing on the tip of the leaf. Great photo.:thumbup:
