I see we're neighbours today! Glad you had a good time at Richmond, look forward to seeing the shots. Cool macro of the mosquito, excellent detail - seems like we've both been suffering for our art one way or another today!
PS - have you had your malaria tablets? ;p

WOW!! What an impressive picture!! I would have crashed it at once before thinking of my camera and after a big start. Sharpness and DOF are perfect. I do love it!
Thank you very much for sharing.

I wait for shot this mosquito and yours is very good, sharpness of details is excellent.
I haven't seen on TN this species. Although we had wet summer but mosquitoes had only a little maybe were too cool weather.
Best regards, Pawel

WOW! This is really amazing!
Your work with that impeccable lens of yours keeps amazing me and makes me crave for one more and more everyday :)
The magnification and the details i see here are most impressive, mate! The clarity of the shot is fantastic and, together with the super DOF that you used, they make a terrific macro shot!
Excellent work, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

I can't say this time "a nice moment captured" :)
Tha photo is very nice, getting the best of the small DOF, great details and very good exposure.
I looked a it for a while and I don't understand very well what I am seeing, in fact I see the brown-red straight spade which goes into your arm, but what is the the other thicker appendix that seems to join the spade at it base?
Great document, the result paid the effort, and the suffer :)
I am looking forward to see your pictures of the pleasant Red Deers instead of this evil thing. These are quite scarse in this island but when you happen to get attacked by ones (like in Elmley Marshes)they are meaner than in the north. Very good macro shot displaying all the evil things in sharp details.

Great macro image of this little skidder, ours can have west nile virus so we don't like to be bitten at all. Your fantastic macro work comes shinning theough here Joe, thank you.

Most people would have smacked this mosquito - not taken a picture of it. You're just not most people. Good macro of the little sucker. Nice how he blends in with your arm and the background. I never realized a little mosquito had such detail.

I really like you Joey, your youth is freshening and there it is in your pictures! I once thought about doing it, right this summer, but was way too lazy for that and preferred to chase the alien! But there you are, experimenting and sharing with us your superb glance on life. Bye bye!

Great shot of this nasty little mozzie Joe.
I'm amazed you could get that so quickly.
I took over an our trying to photograph a bug today and still wasn't satisfied with any of the shots.

Wow, not very many people would do this! You have some very fine details on this one... man, thank goodness we don't have too many of those blood thirsty monsters at this time of year because it is too cold for them. Well done, and great idea for a photo. Your photos always impress me Joey! Thanks for sharing! Cheers Josh Lewis.

Very impressive. I would have liked it much more if you would have waited until its belly was full of blood and got a big red belly. ;) Just kidding. Its an amazing shot.
