Pretty cool. Reminds me of a art show from a while ago. It was all insect paintings. I will look for the link.

I have to echo, that is amazing, amazing !
Love the finite detail and also how it's set in the fading foreground and background.
That fading imagery leaves the setting to the imagination.

OK Natural Baits are good, No harm No Foul.
But I must say one more time you have an excellent eye and talent

Thank you. That means a lot. I love macro photography - just wish I knew what to do with my photos. These are just 2 of the hundreds that I have.

I know Nothing about photos except they make Mega money for the right photos.
We just need to find a distributor of your kind of photos, kinda like making water fountains or wind chimes
you find a place where they will show them and you pay a commission when they are sold

That is definitely what I need. Not too much of that type of thing up in this part of California though.

Howdy ranchwife,
Stock photo agency. You can start your own. A book by the title "Sell & Re-sell Your Photos" written by Rohn Engh. It is an old book written in the 80s but might be useful. I would just google "stock photo agency" to get started. One thing he said is "the last thing you want to do is enter photo contests or sell to calendars with your best shots". You lose control of what you can do with that photo. If you don't think you can sell & re-sell a pic then send it in. Hope this helps.
