Sharp, perfect detail, perfect colour, perfect composition... macro of a bug... ummm... let me guess :)

This is one of my top 3 highest scorers, and if history is to tell us anything, this should score well... and rightfully so. This is exceptionally executed... and despite 2 other bug macros which might have tried to pass itself off as the signature style of one of DPCs greatest, this is my pick of the crop... by far.

I have to guess Roz on this one. Beautifull and inspirational as always! That being said, there is one other that captures these macros just as good. You could be him too!

Only one dpcer is brave enough to shoot these robberflies *waving* hi, Roz! And what function does the thing sticking out of his head provide, spearing other flies?
