The smaller version of the one down below (Leptophyes punctatissima). This one was spending its afternoon on a yellow poppy which tasted obviously very good.
In the 2nd picture you can see it nibbling at the flower. I got all kinds of angles but prefer these three...

I did something like this before but wanted to give it a extreme look this time.
You're seeing a drop of water hanging on a thorn from a rose. It was extrme difficult to get the big drop hanging on the tip like the way it does. I tried several times to get it good.I turned the photo upside down to give it a sureal look and used 2 photos to get all the detail in the drop.

Water on "Mars"

photosPosted by Mark Wednesday, November 02 2011 08:45:37
I was wandering around a long time with this idea. I wanted to make a photo displaying a very dry dessert with some dead trees. On one of the trees a drop of water would hang on the tip of a twig making a nice contradiction in displaying tremendous drought in water...

I painted the scene with in my mind pictures of the Namib dessert. The setup was very hard to get right and I didn't got the picture I had in mind. Therefore I will paint it the way I like it and maby if I'm not too shy I will post it overhere too.

Kermit in pink

It's a stamen from some sort of flower (Don't have a glue wich one). I put two very tiny waterdrops on the top and tried to get some sort of nice reflection in the back of the drop. Then I saw the nice cat eye like stripe and thought of the famous critte from sesame street...

Lestes viridis

photosPosted by Mark Friday, August 05 2011 11:13:31
My best damsel portrait so far. Also the most difficult one because there was nothing to lean on to make myself sturdy. I was amazed that I got all the eyes so perfect in 1 photo. Used the nikkor 28mm with 4cm of tubes for this one.
I made a XXL-size photo so you can see all the detail...

Leptophyes punctatissima

photosPosted by Mark Friday, August 05 2011 10:47:23
edit: Tettigonia viridissima Leptophyes punctatissima = great name for this nice little critter. I loved the arms next to its mouth. I liked the eyes too. Looks a little like those of damsels and dragons...
