I find this fairly amusing as a negative. Hoping to entertain a few voters. It's some sort of jumping spider, upside down on a milkweed leaf.

Had all my extension tubes on (36mm + 20mm + 12mm) and used flash for fill light (those nice black dots in the eyes are catchlight reflections from the flash).

PP - cropped, levels, inverted colors, duotone, increased contrast, reduced noise, touched up sensor dust spots (I've since cleaned the sensor but the spider hasn't come back to pose), resized, sharpened, added border.

You know, I hate spiders, but as a negative, this is actually adorable. Those eyes are like Muppet eyes. Excellent conversion and incredible detail.
