I noticed this guy sitting near my backyard pond while doing some yard work. I had my 28-135mm already attached to my 400D in the house and thought I'd try a macro shot. I wish that one blade of grass/weed was not in the background. C&C is welcome, of course.

The image was converted in Lightroom 2 from RAW and cropped slightly. Some levels adjustment too, but not much.

Thanks for looking.

Good one! I like the blade of grass in the background - it adds a little "natural-ness" to it.
