Great catch! I like the dof and detail on the leg and eye.

What big eyes it has, and a face only a MOTHer could love. Nice shot Liam.

Great detail. I also love macro photography, but I am still struggling to keep a steady hand, and the tripod, monopod and gorilla do not really help much. But I'll upload some insects soon. Daan
