Not sure whether to say ick or wow, lol! Truly, incredible capture, the detail is beyond amazing. This should be in a nature magazine! #11585401

Oh, I am so glad that in my universe I'm larger than these fellows. It's an extraordinary moment with dramatic detail. And on top of that, the dof with the soft natural background is perfect. #11585501
