At this time of the year, when photographic opportunities are less plentiful (at least for a macro photographer), I sometimes find it pays to review these 'best of the rest' images that I didn't get around to processing. Occasionally I find an image that I do quite like.
Anyway, here are a few such images. These will definitely be the last of my 2011 insect images.
