I don't shoot macro very often. I think I'm not patient enough for this kind of photography. It is to me one of the most technical styles of photography, one of the hardest as well, that requires the most experience and skills.
I have a huge respect for all the guys that rock in macro photography. Here in 500px, there are a bunch of them that really are making amazing macros!! Congrats!!

About this shot, I was shooting this butterfly laid on some rocks (pretty much unconfortable btw) when an ant came just next to the butterfly. I saw it on my viewfinder as I was shooting the scene. I just had the time to shoot this encounter pressing the shutter by pure reflex. I had a huge luck because the ant stayed during less than 2 seconds next to the big butterfly. I had also a big luck that the ant came right on my focus area, inside the DoF!
I'm pretty much happy with this shot, please give me some feedback. I appreciate it very much as it helps me to improve more and more :)

No Photoshop is made on this picture, the Butterfly and the Ant were next to each other :)
