This is a Large Milkweed Bug nymph I captured with my brand new Pentax K200D. Not a lot of post-processing (still shooting in JPG mode)- a small curves adjustment, crop, clone out odd bright pixel, border. I was originally going to submit this as "X" for the stalks, then "Y" for the antenna and forearm.... but then I saw the "A."

lovely nature macro - the shapes that the plant can give you depending on the angle are almost endless...and how the bug mirrors the A that is implied in the plant is just fantastic - great work - back for a bump
