    Good news all around, it does grow on you - the only downfall it the inability to zoom out without using a smaller portion of the lens area (smaller pics). Sure that spot could be anything, blurred to much to be sure of anything,

    Oh I forgot to mention - it seems like Delta has a mite on her right antenna (left side of the image). Might want to get some isopods and springtails in there to take care of any problem - if it is

    Great photo, and glad to see your reversing setup is working for you. Depending on how much time you want to spend in photo processing (in other words adjusting color/focus/sharpness/manual editing (like removing any vignette (the tunnel effect from macro zoomed in a bit))/etc. it can help - most photographers spend hours per photo, much more than the time taking photos. Here are my results at some post-processing on your photo.. http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af26/CosbyArt/Mantis/delta-lame-retouched.jpg
  24. My Stagmomantis carolina ooths started hatching Jan 4th and 6th!
