The macro shot shows some very beautiful colours. And the texture of their wings is always amazing to see.

This is such an amazing photo. And isn't it so surprising when you see what these little creatures look like so close up. It always leaves me in awe.

Great Shot. I like Macro photography but haven't learned to do it well. Maybe I need lessons from you;-)

MyMaracas said...

Wow, I can't believe he let you get so close. Awesome!

June said...

That's a fantastic shot! Can I ask what you used to take it? I've taken some pretty good close ups with my lens even though it's no macro, but would like to get this level of detail...
