The fact that this extraordinarily fine image is entirely of your own making, Roger, is hardly grounds for being 'auto-chuffed' in my decidedly devilish and dastardly opinion

You often reach a stage with macro when it changes from photo to art - this is art. Wonderful shot(s).
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Brilliant specimen.

Great technique, expertly applied...well done Roger, you've every reason to be chuffed.

It's a good job that these 'bugs' aren't 100x larger in actuality than they are...world would be a very scary place.

Magnificent photo. Superb use of light.

Pity it's such a horrible creature - vine weevil is the most common cause of "death by pest" for pot plants in my garden.

Dang, that is one heck of a beautifully lit, composed, captured and processed image. Kudos Roger.
