Perfect DOF in this one, especially the wonderful autums shades you have here..... The caterpiller is also pretty much spot on as well.....

I love the colors on this -- most of all the distinction between the leaf and the similarly colored background -- absolutely great.

I would however offer the timid advice of a more dynamic angle for the main subject -- the horizontally flat composition saps a great deal of energy from this vibrant image.

WOW! Great colors and sharpness! The thin black border makes it pop even more. 10!

Great detail and colour in the macro. shame you couldn't just move the vertical leaf which spoils the composition slightly

Reminds me of licorice allsorts - but he's probably poisonous...

Strong detail and toning - and the orange makes a real difference from the usual green for this kind of shot. The less bokeh'd leaves in the background will proably be pointed out as a distraction by some - I'm unsure, but they certainly add a dynamic that works somewhat against the lines of the rest of the image.

The peachy background really makes it for me, and the groovy little guy of course. Lovely shot.

nice bright colors. If I would have done anything I think it would have been to rotate the image slightly so that he wasn't going straight across. good luck.

Very clear, definition, colors & lighting are great, what's not to like?
Well done!

I like this very much. I took some photos of one of these little guys, but yours is definitely more well composed.

Absolutely stunning image. Great DOF, fantastics colours, beautiful bokeh. Let us hope that those that abhor bugs are in the minority and that this does very well. Good job.
