I was out in the garden and saw this guy perched on the edge of a daisy. Not sure what's going on with his back right leg.

Kind of has a "where no bug has gone before" feel to it. Wonderful macro-ish pic with excellent color, great bokeh. Nicely done!

I'm disappointed that this is in 162nd place. This is so well done. The colors and composition are truly exquisite!

I thin I would like to see his tentacles in focus as well but that's just me. Nice colors and it really looks good.

Love this although I wish there were more sharpness on the antennas (or whatever those are called..haha)..but very cool image that belongs on a wall. I like the frame. Great job. 9

interesting composition and good use of background. Not all of the bug is in focus, think he would stand out more if he was

I like the bokeh of the green background, but I think I would like it if the antenae were in focus as well as the bug and petals. I love the contrasting orange and green. 7 from me.

I think I would like this more if the insect was facing the camera. Nice DOF though.
