nice and sharp! my fave is number 2. the one of the moths is good too, but nitpick - too bad the moth at the bottom not in focus.

btw, technical problem - u labelled the cycad blue wrongly liow. ;)

Great composition for #4. Would have been better if the both wings are in focus. The pygmy seems ready to leap over to the next branch :) :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Hi Simon,

Great shots and tack sharp, looks like u mastered the art of handholding macro lens. I like #2 & #3, lovely background & composition. Well done!

O.T: Did you changed your lens? I thought you were using Sigma 180? ;p
