Dear everyone,

Thanks =Flynn-the-cat and ^dandelgrosso for the DD! You can't believe how much this means to me.

And a huge thank you to everyone else! For all the comments and +favs and everything. And just to answer some common questions:

- Shot with a Canon 350D with 100mm macro lens
- Lighting using Sunlight + Bounce Flash (gave some awesome iridescent colours at different angles!)
- Some saturation increase in photoshop, but no colouring in. Plus a crop. Isn't nature just awesome?

Thanks so much everyone and appreciate your kind words!

Your clarity and detail are amazing! Much of the wings are also very crisply in focus. The colors, eye detail, and cropping are also strong points of course! It's a photo with a strong expression. Thank you for sharing. :D

Wow, the first close up picture of an insect that didn't make me cringe. Props.
