What a fantastic macro shot! The colour & detail is superb. Do you have a specific macro lens for this type of shot?

Super sharp and a lovely sheen on their backs, like they are in their Sunday best Smile

Should we put a black censored bar across it? Naw, it's nature, so it's okay.

When enlarged, I pan around trying to take it all in, and the empty space to top and right calls out for a lot of my attention. However, when I look at the thumbnail, everything seems just right, and the empty space calls attention to composition. I have a feeling that this picture's success depends a lot on viewing distance.

Fantastic super-macro. Credit some to the camera. But, most to the photographer for a great photo eye. Just any capture at this range would be enough. Waiting for a perfect moment makes it way more better. Thank you.
