Hello Shirley,
this is a phantastic, impressive and technically perfect picture. The insect and the waterdroplets are
precisely focused and sharply reproduced. But not only the sharpness is admirable. This is also true for the light.
A real highlight!
Best wishes, Peter

What a fascinating shot, I cant really get my head around it. For some reason it reminds me of a shot in a science book I had at school. Macro as it should be done.

Thank you indeed for this jewel of an ant close up from a lateral POV Shirley, the sharply delineated dew droplets make this a perfect composition against that OOF dark green BG. TFS and cheers,
Mehmet

Hi Shirley,
what a splendid macro!It is such a fine composition with lovely details.The dew looks great on the ant, resembling peppercones on a shred.The lighting is warm and the BG makes a fine addition to the composition.
