Wonderfully done as usual. I knew this one was yours immediately. Looks like a Lady Bug to me?

Wow!!!!...Some real eye candy here. This would make a great card/poster. I especially like the details on the bug and the way the colors complement each other.

Mark, believe me, I am not being picky. Just a suggestion. Your pictures are so good, I would be a little more careful about the monikers. Ex. I believe some of your dragonflys are mayflys and damsel flys. For your own future use, (not for photo display), I would even have a file on the exact scientific name.

Great Capture

Fantastic macro- the lighting, color, texture- all very nice. Can you tell me more about the lens or converter used.

Dandy pic

As usual, M. Plonsky has done an outstanding technical job, but this one has an extra layer of impact. It is sensuous almost to the point of obscenity. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to view it at work! The scene seems too intimate for scrutiny, and it makes me feel like a voyeur. I'm embarrased, thinking I need to look away and leave these two to their pleasure. One can imaging a sound track of sighing, cooing, and slurping. Those little curled stamens seem to be quivering with celebratory tingles. The position and tilt of the head is ... OK, I'll hold my peace. An erotic masterpiece!

With a tad more DOF, this would have been a 7 in aesthetics. Splendid. Besides 1 or 2 other shots in the folder, I feel this folder isn't your best though. Regards.

Wow! Great picture! I love bugs that look like this! And capturing on yellow really highlights the red and black... You are so good...
