I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

He looks like a gummy bear with silver arms and legs attached. :)
Very cool shot of the interesting little fellow!

It is an aphid - probably a juvenile.

I love your work, it always makes me smile

Such a beauty and how did the plant macros came?

WOW! What a terrific picture! I'm thrilled! This little guy is a plant louse, that is really something that we can not stand on our plants. A pest, but it is always just a matter of perspective. Because in your case, it has become a wonderful photo.

Yes he is up to no good as far as the plant is concerned. You made him look beautiful though.

Wow this is an incredible picture ... I won't see aphids the same way again! I thought they would be ugly up close like human lice! You made him look rather cute... terrific macro shot!

ruthi

WOW! Amazing shot! Looks like a gummy candy to me... yum! LOL. This is really a great shot.

PeacefulGirl

Very cool! This is one of the reasons why I love macro shots of plants!

Tricia

Nope, don't know him, but greeeeaaaat macro!

Biana

WOW!! I agree with you, almost transluscent. And I don't know this guy either

Kala

Very sharp detail - it's interesting when you go to photography one subject in mind, and then end up shooting something altogether different.

An enemy of Spiderman?!? I'm usually not terribly fond of critters and bugs, but some are so fascinating and beautiful under a skilled photographer's lens...

Annelie

Wow! Stunning! Now, sorry to say, I haven´t seen him before....*LOL*

Mojo

Afraid I don't know what it is unless it's a very, very young grasshopper or something. I love the color though! Microscopic he may be, but nothing escapes Dave and his macro lens!
