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! ;)

But it's looking the wrong way, it should have two eyes on your grandeur. ;)

A nice macro but too much of the bug is missing making me wonder what it looks like in total.

I have a serious love hate with these images you keep taking Light! I love them, but then again I see way more detail on a bug than I ever wanted to see!

I agree with the framing though, I'd like to see the rest. You could try some triptychs and diptychs, to get the full frame and then a close up/different angle. That would be nice IMO :D
