Found these the other day on my bug infested walk through a nearby state park. They're pretty impressive. Shiny, colorful and huge - like dinner plate size.

It's sort of what I imagine a primeval forest to be like. Now where are those 3-foot dragonflies?

Interesting set here, WD. I'm liking number 1 the most in this set. :clap:

They are all perfectly shot WD. Love all three of them. The DOF and the sharpness in each shot is excellence.

Very nice set Wicked! I think shot 3 is my fave here but all of these catch my eye.

Thanks guys. That last one really conveys the texture well...it's smooth, dense and a bit waxy, like patting a dolphin.

#3 is my fav .. for sure ... love the colorchange in the fungus, wonderfully done.

Being an old trekkie, this could be the "enterprise" being attacked by a giant space slug. I bet this image would lend itself perfectly to some major PS manipulation ... mmmm YES!!!!

Is it just me ... or does that actually sound very familiar? I think the Enterprise was attacked by a giant space slug once!

it never occurred to me that it looks like the enterprise, but it kind of does. Wasn't it the Millennium Falcon that was almost eaten by a space slug?

No, a giant slug had a bounty on Han Solo's head though :)
