Not as good as some of your other work but still interesting....I was actually thinking I was going to see some dust bunnies or something when I clicked the link. I think the only thing taking away from the pic is the narrow DOF...where as your others seem to be mostly in focus

Actually I disagree. I think because of the narrow DOF my eyes are directly taken to the vacuum clean mouth!
Great capture Rense, well done!

Thank you! The one strange thing is: the others were made at f/16 mostly, this one at f/19. I think the big difference is that this one is captured frontally, the others from the side. That exposes more of the whole animal......

Thanks again!

Good observation Rense, I myself had never thought of it this way.
Anyways, beautiful. I really like that the focus is on the insect's head and its activity on the leaf.

Very interesting subject!

The only difference is that this one is captured from the front, hence the OOF of the back of the subject. Very detailed macro head shot.

Cheers.
