Gorgeous moth - fingers are distracting.

Don't like the hand.

So cool, especially the antennia! A little light in DOF, but not bad. 9 Swash

Why the fingers? At least the one in foreground is completely misplaced.
07/19/2002 12:17:00 AM
Awesome closeup....fingers are distracting though
07/18/2002 10:58:00 PM

GREAT photography!!!! Excellent work.
07/17/2002 12:52:00 PM
I'm sure you needed to hold him to get him to cooperate, but the hand is distracting.
07/17/2002 11:25:00 AM
I give extra points to anyone willing to TOUCH a bug! ha ha
This is a really great close-up
07/17/2002 10:05:00 AM

07/17/2002 03:13:00 AM

07/17/2002 12:26:00 AM
Good work ... This is a very nice photograph... Very clear focus ... Nice macro work ... I wish there had been a way to do it without the distracting fingers though ... 8 ... RLS

great capture, but the fingers are _very_ distracting. just the thumb could've been standable, but the the finger on the bottom right is just not worknig.
07/16/2002 09:54:00 PM
cool antenna
07/16/2002 06:54:00 PM
this is a neat picture--great DOF and perfect detail on the moth. i think i might have liked it better if the fingers weren't in the frame quite as much, though. 7--amitchell
07/16/2002 06:05:00 PM
cool antenas
07/16/2002 04:59:00 PM
Wow. Good close up.
07/16/2002 03:27:00 PM
ive seen too many insect closeups. however, interesting eyes.
07/16/2002 02:28:00 PM
Just a little less DOF would have been perfect for me. Great macro!
07/16/2002 02:13:00 PM
This is a really cool shot! Great clarity and composition. The only thing that would make it better is if the finger were not blocking the right wing. Nice work.
07/16/2002 11:01:00 AM
he's really creep looking, but that's one of the best bug shots i've ever seen.
07/16/2002 05:01:00 AM
gah! great close up, but eek! 7
07/16/2002 01:33:00 AM
Very nice closeup, sharp and detailed... the thumb is okay but that other finger is really distracting.
07/16/2002 12:37:00 AM
i think your finger was more focused than the moth...
07/16/2002 12:18:00 AM
Geez, some of you guys have AMAZING camras! (not to mention skill)
07/15/2002 11:53:00 PM
Wow. She's beautiful. I wish she were on something other than a finger...close ups of fingers always bug me and they take focus away from the buggy subjects. Next time try finding a stick to hold her up! Great shot! 8
07/15/2002 09:22:00 PM
You struck a nerve with me! Moths are my #2 phobia! Excellent detail.
07/15/2002 06:22:00 PM
That one furry moth, looks like a ball of cotton wool.
Perfect DOF. Great detail. My only complaint is the finger on the right is slightly distracting.
07/15/2002 05:30:00 PM
this is a great shot. i love the clarity of detail of the antlers against the black background and the fingers give a good impression of just how small the moth is. my top 5 this week -- gr8photos (10)
07/15/2002 05:08:00 PM
cool looken moth. 7
07/15/2002 04:19:00 PM
Wow it's really beautiful...not a bad shot at all. Well done. Kee
07/15/2002 04:18:00 PM
He looks like he has a beard ... how cool. The finger on he right is distracting.
07/15/2002 04:08:00 PM
Perfect !
07/15/2002 03:16:00 PM
Good catch
07/15/2002 02:22:00 PM
I find the fingers distracting. Otherwise a very good shot.
07/15/2002 02:13:00 PM
excellent close up
07/15/2002 12:34:00 PM
great macro!
07/15/2002 10:51:00 AM
great mcro
07/15/2002 10:08:00 AM
Is it a hairy moth?
07/15/2002 09:14:00 AM
Great detail. I just wish there wasn't a finger there.
07/15/2002 08:01:00 AM
Very sharp.
