Hey, I like this shot ;-)) You've used the shallow DOF at your disposal to the very best effect here. It's hard to imagine how tiny they really are after looking at this ;-))

Je mi connais pas vraiment en macro, mais j'adore cette photo et ce regard qui nous emportes dans un autre monde. Nettté, lumiére,couleurs très bon. Bonne journée et merci.

Stunning image Pawel. This macro stands out with its DOF and details of eyes and legs. It looks like an alien creature. Well done!

Definitely have to "smile" at this portrait:) It sure does look like an alien. Very well done.

Very great macro, detail and cleanness
In a friendly way Christophe

Perfect macro, Pawel. Details are outstanding. I'm impressed by such a clear close close close up. Nikon should use this to illustrate the extra macro possibilities on this model lens.
