Your right, some thing is missing from the photo, me. LOL Wonderful macro. :O) #9478360

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 #9478911

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!!! #9562167

Where the heck's his head, Mike? (I didn't notice the legs were missing.)
