[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Back garden safari.
I enjoy nature and macro photography in particular. One of a sequence of photos of shield bugs I had taken at this time.
Hand held, natural light with the camera on macro. They were a little preoccupied and didn't seem to mind me getting so close (although they would both at times hide under the leaf).
Cropped slightly to remove a bit of distracting background in Paint Shop pro and gamma slightly increased to bring out detail.
