Again, this controversial I.D. posibly a Ruby Meadowhawk Female, or An Immature Chery-faced Meadowhawk. The Cherry-faced does not have the cherry face until it reaches maturity.
As for the POV, I like it, it's going for something slightly different from the typical.

Thanks for looking

Hi Mike!
Very nice macro. I like fat frame, soft and warm light, POV. Details are very good. This picture has got 'something'...I like it!

Hi Mike

This is a really nicely compoed shot. I like the diagonal entry of the Meadowhawk. Excellent quality shot. Thank you! :-)

Hello Mike,

Very original POV again, Mike, and a great macro. Superb colours, dof and composition

This is a winner, Mike. Not only great on the 'fly, but I also really dig the leaf it's on. I'm also digging the shadow (the light source seems to be a few degrees to the left of the lens. I can't tell if this is natural light or you have your flash off the camera [no exif data to go on]. Whatever it is, it adds a nice sense of depth here). Great job!

Hi Mike,
Great composition. It let the viewer focus on the head without any distraction. The details are beautifully captured and I really like the lighting in this photo.

Hi, Mike.
Nice colors and composition. Sharp details.

Excellent macro Mike, very good composition and POV on this specimen. Well thought out shot, good work.

Hi Mike.
I love the clear and delicate you captured the textures here. Great crop and composition too.
I would have pulled down a bit yellow saturation, but of coure color temperature is a question of taste.
Good work. Regards, Felipe.
