Brian Gruettner submitted this telephoto bug taken with a Pentax K100D Super with an exposure of 1/500sec at f/7, ISO 200. I like the shallow depth of field, which emphasizes the main subject. The exposure is good but could use a little brightening up. Otherwise my only suggestion is a crop to get rid of the overwhelming empty green space and put the focus on the bug.
