    Interresting subject and well depicted. Good capture, but composition suffers. The rule of thirds rule.

    I agree - having the critter dead centre makes the picture more like a catlogue image, i.e. This is an example of a "whatsitcalledbug" in its natural habitat, rather than an interesting photo in its own right.

    Rule of thirds says that you should have the the main focus of the image 1/3 of the way from the edge (e.g. horizon 1/3 of the way up an image) or 1/3 from the corner if it's a point of interest (e.g. if you look at the rennaisance paintings, especially the religious imagery) you'll find the most important face located 1/3 from the top and 1/3 from the left or right hand side)

    Well taken shot though - focus and exposure are bang on, all the detail it there.

    Yeh, I agree w/ the others. The composition would be greatly improved if the rule of thirds was used. Good shot otherwise though
