Lannie:  Well done, this bug is really getting a lot of photo time.  I think this one is much better than "All Downhill from Here".  Tom

Nice work for a fist attempt. Next time, use a slower speed and achieve less grain.

Thanks, Emmanuel.  I think that I shall also shoot with the 5D II next time so that I can turn up the ISO with relative impunity.  Even resized crops would be less noisy than pictures made with the 50D, as Scott Ferris' recent thread on PN clearly shows.

Thank you, Rashed.  I will pray--and even dance--for sun the next time I try this, so that I can shoot at low ISO and be done with the grain/noise.

Thanks, Tom.  He gets a lot of time here because he was slow enough that I could shot him!

Very colorful bug you captured its vibrant colors well.  It is sharp revealing details of it antenna and legs. I like your composition at a slant. BG is nicely blurred.

  At ISO 3200 it is a very good picture but when viewed large it does show some noise.   Regards, ifti.

Thank you, Iftikhar.

Barely Hanging On This is from my first day trying to shoot with a macro lens. It was a very dark, cloudy day, and so these are grainy from being shot at ISO 3200 on the 50D. Comments welcome.
