Came out well - like the angle. I just find the slightly blown areas a bit eye catching.

Lovely closeup of the butterfly. Focus and looks good. I do find the patterned glass it's sitting on a bit distracting though and I suspect the brightness of the light there has given some underexposure on the butterfly

Thanks a lot for the feedback, Brian. I agree with you about the distracting light and this was taken at a butterfly conservatory with a few hundred people milling around, so not many chances of getting close to a butterfly. I'll keep the perch in mind for the future.

Agree - with macro you can't always get the shot you would prefer.

The Feelers I feel for Me should be within the frame. It looks cut off to Me. Nothing much wrong with the rest of it that Lightroom won't fix. Nice work
Here is a Sample of my Photo taken a month ago.

I'm new to Photocamel but felt it was time I put some of my macro work up and got some feedback. This is the type of shot I enjoy most as it needs an understanding of the "bugs" behaviour + the ability to spot the moment. The "Added value" in this shot for me was both the wing movement on the Hoverfly + the Aphid on the edge of the rose.

Shot using a canon 100 LIS macro on my 7D lit using a sigma ringflash

What do you think?

Whoops - missed this

Always difficult to get a bug in flight shot and this came out very well. The main negative for me is the OOF rose petal which rather dominates the right of the photo.
