Nature is amazing alive and as well in death. I found an old sticky mouse trap under my back yard steps. It must have been there for a year or two. I t had fossils of lizzards and bugs frozen in time at their end. It struck my as a unique picture that I had to take.

Your shot was very cool! It made me think of Jerry Seinfeld in "The Bee Movie".

Check out the the mouse trap photo at my site in the objects gallery at the end. #5504949

How fun, Katy! I tried something similar and it didn't pan out. I need a good macro lens like you must have! Congrats on this awesome Gold winner. BP just showcased it in the scrolling winner circle area. :)
