    G’day SHELLEY!

    That great shadow really makes this insect study stand out from the crowd and you really got a lot out of your depth of field coupled with a good focus to deliver a nice sharp subject.
    A good exposure and lovely natural colours round off this fine photograph.


  • Cheers Dennis! I really appreciate your wonderful comments as always :)
