I think that one of the beautiful joys of macro photography is when you find your subject and begin to focus, occasionally a surprise appears into your point of view.

That was just the case when I shot this photo. I had a focal point of a couple of these flower bud clusters. Suddenly from behind the most prominent one in the shot, this guy decided to make himself noticeable. I had instantly shifted my focus to him rather than the cluster, and am now completely happy that I had.
