    Gorgeous colors, Rachel! I love the soft focus around the bug and the sharpness on its vivid colored back. Very nice comp.

  • Thank you Mariann… I was trying out my macro extension tube, frustrating to work with, haha. But cool if you have some patience. I’ve had it since I first bought my camera but hadnt used it since my lens is macro. So this is a much closer shot than I can get with the camera alone but it has to be exactly in the right spot to focus… anyhow…. thanks!

    I guess, I have never thought, using that can be so challenging, but like with everything else, you learn it fast, I do some awesome work!!!
