dun blame the bugs lah ;p

You should look for a place where the background is open and bright ( full of green leaf and grass ) ... Marsh Garden is 1 of the good place for this insect shots .. try to compose against the slope ..

Hey mate,

Yeah, as some others have mentioned, the background is a little distracting, you've also got to contend with the large DOF of your P&S, won't quite blur the background as much as you can with a SLR/DSLR.

Nice catches though, we should go out shooting again sometime...

Hi bro gooseberry,

Thanks a lots for the comments and advises. :D Yes we should organize another outing and give these bugs another fright of their lives again :devil:
