I got TOTALLY drenched in sweat waiting on this bug to land here again after he had seen me. He took many, many fly-bys to check out the situation.
Then... he landed... and a nice breeze showed up... *sigh* It was cooler... but... I was handholding my fixed lens camera, manually focusing, and those light reeds were going crazy with his added weight...

You bug shooter artists are amazing! This was really hard work. LOL!

Sharp... good depth of field, great composition not dead centered, perfect background... can't find anything to complain about except I'd like to see it flipped to move the bug to the right third. If it was that way I'd give it a 10.
