Lovely Macro.
Good clarity and colour.

Hello Mr.Stone,
To me its very difficult to bring out details from black 'subject'.If this subject is shiny like this bug I shall let the Bug to go.
Quite well captured with good details on legs.Even in right hind leg is well focused.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards And have a nice time,
