#2 - common posy

I got 1 comment, the cropping for the posy is too tight ;)

Hey MC, nice butt shots there! :D simonsng is right in his ID. The third insect is a White-handed fly. The white porcupine like insect - I have no idea...could be a mealy bug or something. :dunno:

The 1st butt shot is good, sharp and good exposure, did you prone on the ground to get it? For the Common Posy shots, would prefer if more space is shown around the butt, its cropped too tightly IMO. Also watch the wingtips & ur DOF...they're out of focus.

Good attempts tho...not easy to get near butts and get good shots with a 105mm, but it can be done (with practice). Hope to see more butt shots coming! ;)
