This is wonderful. Was it alive when you took this?

Thank you.
Yes, she was alive when I shot this...

All of my insect shots are of alive, healthy subjects in their natural habitat. Sometimes I will take Jumping spiders home for the night to have a studio session, but most of them are shot in the wild as well.

That's awesome. I do not appreciate dead insect shots nearly as much. There is something about getting down and dirty that makes the image that much better :)
