Well, usually I'm disgusted of insects and bugs, but your shot adds a distinct approach to this subject. It seems rather like a jewel. Fantastic! Clap Hi!

I have a slight difficulty for bugs too, but it feels like that when I can see them up close it is better :)

Damn, that damage pattern on its eye makes it look like a reptilian-insectoid. Anyways, nice specimen for photo, the lighting also fits it very well!
