Lovely capture. Interesting size and colour differences. Wonder if they are different sexes.

it is always special when you get more than one specimen in your photos and these are two excellent looking critters and a great photo of them. :wink:

Thanks Doug. :D
Here I applied selective noise reduction (only on background) and sharpening (only on bugs and flower).
Is it o.k.? :-k
No cheating? :?

I just noticed this one. The image looks great! :D

The use of selective noise reduction in some areas, sharpening in others, is not certainly not "cheating".

It is a bit unusual, though, and other people could benefit from knowing about it, so it's a good technique to mention having done.
