I think it's a pretty cool shot too. He looks like he's looking at you over his shoulder.

Here's a more recent shot of the same insect:

You can see the differences in maturity with their faces. Also, the above shot was at 1:2ish while the first was 1:1 cropped.

Very nice shots, the colors in the background are very vibrant and compliment the photo well. I also really like how sharp the photo is and the depth of field is perfect. If you don't mind me asking what lens did you use to make this photo?

If you could let me know I would appreciate it,
