Holy ####!
Every time you master (macro) photographers get these beautiful shots... it just leaves me breathless! It looks like I could just reach into my computer screen and pick it up! I'm learning how gorgeous the little tiny bugs really are, based solely on seeing photographs like this. Thank you!

 
#### Thank you Mandy!
I love these little guys. They are so cute, and fairly cooperative to photograph. Scott's the real master with all his great macros of tiny bugs. I do my best, and try to get as many bugs as possible. My ultimate goal would be to photograph every bug that's in our area. I know that's impossible in a lifetime, but I'll keep trying:-)
