This is an excellent capture of a really cool little critter. The focus and detail are impeccable. I think it might be better suited by a black border, but that's just a personal preference.

Wow, the focus is astounding, not to mention the color! Part of me wishes it was facing the camera, but I'm also intrigued by the fact that it's rare to see this angle. Lovely photo!

What.. IS that?
It's so odd looking, and yet I cannot turn away.
I like the way the border is. White and then the pink from the insect. I think you chose white well. I like how the white in the background blends in with the border. I love that look
