The broken wing didn't seem to hold this critter back, I followed it all around the garden!

My first challenge entry with my new Sigma 180mm Macro.

Although I took this photo a few days ago, the idea for the poster didn't dawn on me until about 4 hours before rollover.

I would have really preferred the wings of this to also be in focus. I don't find the body that interesting, but had all of the bug been in focus, i think this could have been a much stronger photo, especially when your phrase refers directly to the wings.

Nice colours in this image, although the green to the left is a distraction and adds nothing to the overall omage.

Very sharp and I like the colors. The yellow leaf on the top left is a little distracting.
