Upside Down

Upside Down

This amazingly cute insect was hanging upside down from a leaf. Of course I had to take a close-up photo, to show the cuteness. I'm happy to report that he's not dead (even though I thought so, initially), as he was moving his legs and eventually flew away.

What do I like about this photo? There's a huge amount of details, right down to the "fur" on the body. The pose is humorous, as well. The separation between the background and the subject is very good, since the background is blurred out, and the color is different. That being said, the background is still of some interest to the photo.

What would I want to improve? I would have liked better details on the entire body - that would probably have required photo stacking, which I wasn't able to do here because of the challenge of getting a good angle on this bug.
