    It took some doing to get a shot of this guy. He kept hiding from me behind the blade of grass he was clinging to. After a couple of rounds of peek-a-boo I was able to get his entire head visible.

    Reversed lens macro with off camera flash. A little more on the making of this photo and how I approach insect macro photography is on my photo blog, Points of Light.
