Daily Deviation

Given 2014-07-20
Bug 3 by GreGa18 is a sharp capture giving us a glimpse into close-up detail of an insect that we don't usually get to see. ( Suggested by x-xSpitFirex-x and Featured by Kaz-D )

I can't believe you got this shot on a kit lens. Well done! And absolutely inspiring for those of us who can't afford $1000 worth of new glass on the front of our hardware.
