Wow! You captured a fine image here, Verity. Great detail, design and color. The angle of your subject works well in the composition. A little manip in the background would hide the tilt of the horizon, although because of the gorgeous subject, it is barely noticeable. Overall, a pretty cool shot. I'm jealous.

I wish I could do that with my I wouldn't even be able to see it if the macro here wasn't as crisp as it's amazing. They really are quite colorful, I hate to say, and destructive, as I remember in swarms...let's hope he's not TOO successful if those are mating calls you're hearing :( The contrasts are stark and can be seen most readily with all the markings. I have to agree with Cyberbod that the whole photo would be better served if the background were blurred as much as possible, so that you wouldn't be able to see that horizon tilt..but I'm not complaining..excellent job :)PJ

Wonderful clarity and color. The background is disorienting and thus distracts from the subject. You could blur it down to unrecognizability or replace it all together. It would be worth the effort because the insect is so impressive.

I was so impressed with the color and clarity on this lil' critter that I didn't even notice the background until I took a closer look. A great shot Verity! Brava!!
