Ok, I'm officially stunned.

Amazing work,Volker. Just *looking* through the viewfinder would make me too scared to actually take the shot.

Great DOF. Usually macro shots are so shallow because of the way traditional lenses and smaller sensors work. But this has a really nice wide DOF for the subject.

Thank you for your comments! :-)
@Paulo Brabo: I couldn't believe you're scared by such a beautiful creature, you who have fist size "house-spiders". ;-)
@clvrmnky: It was taken at f16.

Nice picture.

@clvrmnky, the guy who ID'd my dragon for me tells me the fine details are called 'ommatidia'.
