Green Lacewing by oliverporter3 Green Lacewing by oliverporter3
I found this lacewing flying around the countryside and followed it until it landed. I was then able to get very close to it in order to take this shot, due to the insect being blinded by the sunlight behind me.

Just to let you know, i have got rid of the water mark and have added my own signiture now instead, hope you feel this is an improvement :)

it is a really great photo but i don't feel like favouriting any pic (doesn't matter how good it is) with a watermark on it which is that huge. i mean, why should anyone steal your work in a place like that?
and still, there is always a possibility to create a watermark which might even be decorative...
i don't want to be impolite, i just think it's really a pity.

i understand what you are saying here and i am working on creating my own signiture for my work so i can lose the water mark however it is taking time. I am planning to make a small yet distintive signiture mark in the bottom right hand corner of each photograph so that, as you say, if people favour it they will not have a big, ugly watermark over the top of it. cheers for the criticism, it is well recieved :)

Lacewings are mainly found in woodlands or well-treed gardens throughout Europe however are mainly found more towards the southern end. When they are flying through the air i always find they look like daddy-longlegs at first glance because their colour is so delicate that can only be seen properly when they land :)

Lovely shot, I've never seen these buggers before... Where do they live?

thanks :) i have to use watermarks because otherwise the image isn't copywrited and anyone could portray it as being theirs, but yer i do agree, the watermark does ruin the beauty of the picture
