Really nice shot, what lens did you use?
I've tried many times to catsh small insects like this but I never seem to get the focus right, or maby my lens just isn't good enough.

Pentax K10D (soon to be K7 I hope)
Pentax SMCP-FA 50mm f/1.4
Sigma 17-70/2,8-4,5 DC Macro
Karl Zeiss Jena S 135mm 3.5
MC Zenitar 2.8 16mm Fish Eye
Pentax-M SMC 28mm 2.8
Asahi Pentax 500mm 8.0

Hi Magnus, thanks for the compliment. I use a Pentax 100 Macro lens, sometimes with a 2x converter and close up 'filters' hope this help.
Pentax K10D, *istDS
Pentax 18-55mm,50-200mm,Macro 100mm
Takumar-A 28-80mm, Sigma 170-500mm, Soligor Teleconverter x2

Finally!! Sigma 10-20mm

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

This is one absolutely fantastic shot. The DOF, the sharpness everything about is is top notch. Well done
