Great capture of the insect. I think that it could have been improved by cropping out some of the out-of-focus foreground. Great work.

Nice framing!! looks as though it is preparing for a take-off.

Nice macro with good use of DoF, however I find the highlights on the wing a bit distracting.

Nice image. It looks a little oversharpened and on a personal note I've never been a fan of large amounts of blurring up front in most images. Always makes me think that I might need glasses...

It's photographs like this that make me want to go out & buy a good macro lense. I really like the sun light glistening off the wings.

Great macro shot...focus seems to taper off towards his back end, but still a great photo.

For me, there's a little too much of the foreground out of focus and the white in the upper left is also a little too much--to the extent that it distracts. Other than that it's really nicely done.

One good push, and I can get started...I just know it. I just hope that engine overhaul holds up.

Nice clarity, great DoF. The ligh reflects beautifully off of the wings 7
