Thanks! There is something missing (besides Doc), I only see two legs on the visible side of the body. I did not notice that until I was working on the photo. I now wonder if it was going in circles? :-) Mike

Something is missing. The legs. I'd never know this was a Daddy Long Legs if you hadn't told me. And, I've never seen them up close before. You even captured the tiny hairs on his legs. Amazingly created macro. Well seen and focused. It's razor sharp. Good tonality and clarity. Congratulations on your finalist! Your macro rig is really paying off!!!

Congratulations on your Finalist award for this "really great, really creepy macro! It elicited a response from us and that is one thing that is great about it. The other is that it is a superb macro.

Thanks so much!! I really like it when my images stir some type of emotion. I know that people are really looking when an image grabs them like that. :-)
