Looks like it's embracing the plant. Extremely good composition, colors, clarity, nice background. I really do like the look of its embracing that plant! I think it would make an excellent addition to any nature book on insects. (9.25)

45 Ron Day   (8/26/2002 7:52:00 PM)
Wow, you have totally blown me away with all of your kind comments and votes. Thank you very much, I really appreciate it! A number of people have commented on the detail in this image. I don't believe this degree of detail would have been possible if I did not have the mirror in my camera locked up. In macro work, I find the mirror lock-up feature invaluable. Thanks again. Ron
