The first word that pops into my head when I look at this photo is "Wow". Actually, words cannot explain how much I love this photo. I think it's one of those shots that is taken completely spur-of-the-moment and happens to become one of the best photos you'll ever take. From a technical standpoint, the depth of field is fantastic. I really admire the fact that the eyes are in focus and the mouth is blurred slightly, though the background is completely blurred and has a hint of bokeh, but it's not completely overwhelming. The fact that the photo is in black and white adds a certain authenticity to the shot that is phenomenal. Overall, I think that the shot is fantastic and only minor adjustments could have improved it, but only slightly. Great work!

i think that this photo is quite amazing. you seemed to have captured it a just the right moment, while making it look as if it was unplanned. this is a very well taken picture, i might add. i love how you did a black and white photo as opposed to regular colors. i think that it adds to this magnificent photograph. i feel that this picture really captures the grace of the little flying insect that is perched opon your nose, and it serves as inspiration to me. i think this picture has succesfully ended my writers block. this is a very well done, inspirational picture, and i hope to see more in the future.

What a wonderful photo. I can easily see this as being one of those photos that could many manifestations/interpretations and appear all over things like postcards and stuff. An iconic image like 'Lunch atop a Skyscraper' and others :)

I remember this happening to me :P I was wearing aviators too, so I wondered if it thought I was just a big dragonfly. It's feet itched and tickled so much, but I didn't want to rub my nose and move it
