beautiful shot!
This must have taken you hours, I hope you framed it and put it on your wall or in a book somewhere!

 
Thanks,
Actually, the whole shoot took only a few minutes - part of my daily bug walk. Sometimes, I get lucky. Sometimes, I find a subject that seems as curious about me as I am of it. I hope some day to become a bug-whisperer.   :-P)
