    I found this guy on my kitchen table last night when i got back home from work. I don't have a macro lens (I am planning to buy some close-up filters though) so i got as close as i could. This is my first insect shot so C&C would be appreciated. :D

    Thanks! I too thought he was saying cheese! It was amazing to see his eyes following and studying me as I moved around him, it gave me the impression that i was photographing a very intelligent insect.

    This needs a caption:

    "Hello my darlin'/hello my baby/hello my ragtime gaaaal"

    Perhaps 'shop in a top hat?

    Okay, nevermind. Bad idea :p Love the shot.
