Paul,

Thanks for sharing Smile

Particularly like #2 and the 'location' shot is good for overall perspective.

The treehopper is an odd little beast. Nicely captured!

The Wasp and the Long Horn Beetle are my favourites here:

The Wasp.............. because I like the colour and composition combined with the excellent overall focus:

The Long horn beetle shot I like because of the colour impact and the very selective focus:


You obviously had a great trip:

Another wonderful set overall................thank you for sharing:

Thanks Craig and SA, it's very useful for me to know how each picture speaks to a person.

Can’t help but to wonder just how much of that rain forest has changed over the span of times past. It is good to see the environment from which your photos were taken, something that is lost most of the time when shooting macros. The spider mimicking ant is quite an unusual creature, I don’t know about the rest of the crowd but that is the first time that I have ever seen one of those, anywhere! A very nice set of images. That hopper is very unique also! Smile

Thanks Ken, interesting to see how the jungle has changed, not so interested to see how it will change! I'm used to seeing ant-mimicking jumping spiders but this was a new one for me. Possibly a clubonid spider.
Cheers,
Paul
