2011-07-15 (Day 322) Stansted Insect

Sorry, it’s another insect macro.

This little fellow was sitting on the outside of the window at Stansted. He totally ignored me as I approached the window from the inside, and he helpfully stayed still as I monkeyed around with the settings on my camera until I was able to grab a shot of him.

What impresses me about this picture is that it is almost a 100% crop from the original picture (probably about 90%), yet the amount of detail in the picture is astonishing. This from a small-sensor point and shoot is making me completely rethink my opinion of what such cameras are capable of!
