Cools set Paul! The subjects are pretty neat looking, and you've done a super nice job of capturing them The iridescent bee shots are my favourites from the set.

Fantastic! You really know your close-up photography.

The micro world is so exciting, especially from an exotic, tropical place. I think I am liking macro photography the most these days. Keep them coming

I used to have Huntsman's around my place in Florida....fascinating animals.

And that snake is so strange looking....interesting.

Paul,

Great images! I particularly like #3, #7 and #14. Simply stunning. How is Borneo these days, by the way? I hear stories about massive deforestation.

Wow, thanks everyone for the positive feedback and kind words, it's much appreciated!

PhilPDX- There is certainly a lot of deforestation and taking an 8hr bus along the coast will reveal nothing but endless palm plantations. It takes a while to get to pristine primary forests but well worth the effort and unlike Indonesia these areas are fairly well protected with good stewards which have much less of the of illicit trafficking you'll find in many other SE Asian countries.
