Hi Richard: Quite an interesting creature. The selective focus works okay on this image as you are shooting the subject straight on, you probably could have stopped the lens down to f/11 or f/16 and gained slightly more sharpness on the head of the subject. But still at this extreme magnification your depth of field would still be very shallow even stopped down more. These high magnification subjects are fun to photograph.   Posted: 10/08/2020 01:00:41

Hi Richard,
You've re-defined 'catch & release'. Good images should be 'attention grabbers'. Yours certainly is. Compositional and technical aspects of this image are very well done.   Posted: 10/16/2020 11:58:57

Hi Richard: "The Ayes Have It" for the Eyes. Not having a knowledge of insects I went to the internet to find a few definitions of insect body parts. Not surprisingly, humans and insects have similar names for the same parts of their bodies. I see portions of good texture and sharpness in the eyes and mouth. I admire your exploration into the world of small creatures.   Posted: 10/20/2020 11:24:14
