I think this one this one has the Goalkeeper's shirt on. :-)

Very good macro, Greg. I like the contrasted colors and the great sharpness on the fore part, showing clearly it's grainy surface. These GRAPHOSOMA LINEATUM are out here too and are a very good subject for striking macros. They live mainly on ombelliferous plants, sometimes in large number. You just need eleven of start a coach job, but training might be hard ;-).

Very striking colours Greg. Long Bay College's (7kms away) rugby colours too. Good POV, it looks like he's training on a tightrope. Well done.

Interesting bug. The colours are also interesting as tonight the All Blacks (New Zealand) played the first Rugby test against the Lions. Now, I say the colour of the bug is interesting as the All Blacks supporter colour is, well.... all black. Aren't you surprised..... Say: yes! and the supporter colour for the Lions is red... so who does this bug support for the Rugby tonight?
Good POV and OOF BG. Thanks.
BTW... The All Blacks won!!! :-)

My local team (Wycombe Wanderers) had a black & red striped kit (Away) for a season. We didn't do very well though!

Grzegorz, I must say that here in Brazil we have Flamengo (www.flamengo.com.br).
One of the greatest football players ever (Zico) was a Flamengo player. Nowadays, Zico is Japan's coach.
Flamengo has the greatest number of supporters in Brazil - there are millions of them.
As for your photo, some noise that the Blur Tool could easily eliminate.
Great pov and contrast.

Is this supposed to be a sad Milan AC supporter. Nice details of the head and well composed. A bit noisy though.
