Hi this is a great shot. The little insect is definately well camouflaged, but the flower you have captured is truyl gorgous too. Double whammy....... well done.

Looks like a critter we called a Katie Did when I was a kid. That's what my grandfather called them and I have ever since. Cool shot with the big yellow flowers in the background.
