Alli, allow me a piece of advice: do have the patience to take as many shots as possible. After all, it's one of the greatest advantages of digital photography. Be sure that by having patience you'll have great shots.
As for the photo itself, it's a pity the but isn't in a different environment. But that's nature, and we have to shoot the creatures where they are.
Despite the little overexposure, I like the colors.

It looks like it belongs in a comic book. What a strange pattern it has Alli. I hope it was outside your door! Thank you for sharing and please keep it over there.
You do need patience for macro but practice does pay off - in the long run.

I am not the one to critique macroshots as I am HORRIBLE at it. I will try anyway; like you wrote the scenery is not very natural, but there is nothing you could do about it I guess. ;) The white spots on his back are a bit oe and the dark parts are ue. Colors are very nice and composition is good. I think you did okay! TFS!

Hi Alli, Nice macro despite the technical difficulties of the shot. It's well composed and I like your frame here. Good POV also. It appears to be a type of moth, but there are a kazillion of em'..Well done.

I wish I could help you about ID, but I'm not good at it. Even I search,I may write wrong ID! I think it's more difficult than taking shots!
It looks very interesting. I'll visit this shot later to learn the ID.

Hi again Alli! I do not have the time to write a complete comment. Sorry for the ID. I cannot help. Maybe the name is written on it. That seems to be chineese symbols!!!
