Funny bug. Good capture, although I would have preferred the right antenna to be angled slightly differently. But I guess it's not easy to ask him isn't it?
I'm new to this list, how do I give points?

What a funny chap you've found here, he looks as if he's wearing a full tweed suit ;-))
Your work with flash and diffuser paid off nicely, well done.

Beautiful shot, Japie. The textures are superb, and you managed very well with the light, that reflective sunshield worked perfectly. I love the acacia spines with the shadows.
Focal lenght 300mm means that you did not use macro, but zoom?
Thanks for posting.

This is BRILLIANT Japie! This is my favourite of your shots. I love it. The composition and details are excellent. You have used the flash to prefection.
It kinda looks like a fluffy toy.
Well done, points tomorrow.

Tal vez la textura y colorido del insecto son los responsable de que la nitidez no sea perfecta... pero la calidad de la captura es muy buena.
Buena composicion y una nota que expresa lo que nos sucede a muchos de nosotros.

Japie, Odd looking thing! I like Pauls remark about the "fluffy toy"! It looks like it would be insulated well from the cold!! Like the comp. with it astride the branch, split with blue sky. Great detail & you used your diffused flash & reflective shield with great results.. Great job!!

Prachtig man die harige beestje. Fantastic taken, good colours, and yes the details are lovely. The contrast and the dof are great, goed gedaan Japie.

Great macro of this Mr. Stinky. While I have encountered these fellows before, I had no idea that they were fuzzy when young. Well done.

Fantastic macro Japie. Iv never seen anything quite like this insect before it. Its texture is most unusual.
