You, Denosha, Veloran and co are kings of this empire. I bow my hat to your work here.
sk: U flatter me sir, thanx but I'm not a king. still learning how to shoot macro stuff

Me? A king? Nah... tongue
Anyway, this is an excellent shot! I don't actually think you really need more DOF, because the focus is exactly where it needs to be. Coupled with the vibrant greens and orange (why is it orange anyway?), the background has a slightly abstract feel to it. The shallow focus also helps to draw attention to the bug amidst the bright background. Again, great work!
sk: thanx Veloran. the orange is the flower petals.

Cool composition, and the colours go well together. I like the softness today
sk: thanx Etomi, the softness was the result of DOF lens blur
Ahhh im such a sucker for macros..really great, and what awesome colours you got..
sk: thanx Yanik

I actually like the razor thin DOF here. Very nice. The lil fella looks determined.

No, I disagree. The shallow focus makes this image stronger. It's a great picture, wuth superb colourfields - well done.
