Wow! What amazing detail. I like how you've captured him on what appears to be the corner of a glass. He, or rather, she seems to be almost falling off. Nicely captured. :)

I havn't seen these since I was a kidd. We called the "Cow Killers" They are so pretty. I picked it up and the sucker stung my pinky finger and it felt like somone stabbed it. The sting is pretty powerful. Great shot.
