    wow mia… you got some strange looking bugs in australia! never seen anything like this… must be nice to get outside… and enjoy the summer…. as i look out my window.. i see a lot of snow!! and it’s still coming down… this is unusual for us… last few years we haven’t gotten any snow at all!!
    the colors in this are fantastic… and the DOF is perfect…and that green background makes this a perfect photo!!! nicely done, my friend!! barb

  • Hope this rather “gruesome” scene of a friendly bug being impaled by another carniverous bug doesn’t scare everyone away :) Thanks for your comments… Would love to see some snow pics from your side of the world.
