I think this is my very favorite from your gallery, Justin.

You asked us to tell you how you could have made it better. Well, you just couldn't have made it any better. It's just beautiful.

The colors are soft and pretty. The bug is in perfect focus. It just leaves a person feeling really good looking at this.

GREAT JOB! -Laura Swan
