Shot of the Day #10

This photo isn’t anything too fancy, however I really like this photograph because I managed to get a clear sharp focus on the insect and managed to capture the water droplets as well in the tiny depth of field :P ! I used my kit lens, 18mm-75mm, so it wasn’t a special macro lens. The other factor in this photograph is the clarity achieved from such a large original ( however, reduced the quality for the web), which wouldn’t have been possibly with a low pixel count, whereas 14.2 mega-pixels does help a lot when cropping down!
