Hallo Graeme
South African photographers is one the go today and I am proud to be a fellow South African and photographer. The details and colours captured in this micro are great. I like the way most of the flower is blurred out, laying emphasis on the minute little insect with its beautifully displayed eye. The yellow brightens the image as a whole. All the best for 2009 and may you have plenty photographic oppertunities coming your way.
Best regards.

hi graeme, cute shot of this beetle. good sharpness and nice pov. i like the contrast betwenn the colors. nice job.

Hi Greame,

Nice POV. Image looks so attractive even though some parts like antenna don't have the accurate focus. Also that yellow flower in the background is so superb. You have got the background blured so beautifully. Thank you a lot for sharing it. Wishing you a super 2009.

Thank you,
