Daily Deviation

Given 2013-03-04
697.233.499 by ~hendese features a creature that is only about 2mm big in size! It's truly amazing how we can see a lot of detail here as a result of how small it is in real life. Not only do the colours contrast well between subject and background, the execution is also fantastic too. ( Suggested by mintyy and Featured by 3wyl )
