Incredible details, Jane. I especially like the placement of the beetle. Many would crop and have the beetle centered. This composition is far more effective as you have it, Jane!!! #2869393

Judy, Heidi, Melissa, Shelly, Stan, Jenny, Bill, Colette, Carla, John & Nadine...THANK YOU all for your positive comments! I shot this as is while sitting in a famous coffee shop on a corner in the middle of town in New Hope, PA (i won't mention the name since this is my 1st experience seeing a "bug")...I was sitting at a table next to this window sill. I never saw a beetle this colorful b4 & had to take his pic! :-) I appreciate you taking the time to let me know your thoughts on this. #2871422

Great Macro Jane! Nice detail and use of space in the placement of the beetle in frame.

We used to call them Japanese beetles when I was a kid, with the irridescent green color. As long as it wasnt a roach, I'd still eat at this establishment! (Howl)

Jane, I added "Dried" to the feather pic title, as once again your astute observation was "Right On" (smile)
