Hi Dmitry,
great shot of this interesting insect. It's a good thing that you captured it with such sharpness other wise it would be very hard to see as it does blend well with the BG. DOF is great, showing the entire bug nicely in focus.

Hi, Dmitry: Almost missed this one, as the camouflage means that the thumbnail image does not stand out. Nice shot of this interesting and easily overlooked species, and surprising good DOF for a reversed lens.
Regards, Nigel.
