    Thanks for sharing this, I am glad you've decied to enter the world of macro shooting.

    This shot is very well timed, I love the way you've caught the insect in flight. The posistioning of the flowers is good also.

    The whole image does seem a little blue and cool to me, however this may just be my monitor.

    I like it!

    I do agree that the image appears to be on the cyan side, but that is an easy fix in Light Room or Photoshop.
     
  4. Thanks!
    Here's aversion with the WB warmed up a tad.

    Yes! I far prefer this version, it doesn't seem so cold. Thanks for making the effort to change.
