    I have umm, been drinking responsibly. And well, I got to looking at this critter.
    I figure it's a female because she's staring at me. I have that effect.
    Not to toot my own horn or anything. I like to keep within the confines of modesty.
    So far I feel I've been doing a good job of that here on the forum.
    Wouldn't you agree?
    Oh gee , It's time for my 5 minute mirror break. Be right back.

    Nice lighting and good focus - not sure about the framing or such, but as a general macro insect shot a good one and certainly better than the ladybug (you didn't blast this one with a sea of light)

    It was the shell bro.
    This thing absorbed the light.
    The lady bug sucked. lol I know. You know me bro. I gotta come back with something. lol
    It was raining. Check out the water drops.
    Thank you Mr. Moderator. From a fellow macro shooter.

    I'm on my iPhone so I can't 100% but it looks like you nailed the focus!

    Nice! So did it land on the lens? And that startled you, so you accidentally actuated the shutter? lol!

    Framing is a little off.. but looks good. Interesting eye!

    It was just more or less, practice.
    I cropped it slightly, 4:3.
    This one's back to 3:2.

    HA! In bug years, this thing is older than you are! lol! I would be more concerned about it being a different species... but that's just me! ;)
