Raw power! (captured in a raw format)

Challenge #15 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
Although just about every camera saves images using JPEG compression by default, saving raw, unprocessed, sensor data is a common option. Raw formats allow more sophisticated post-processing (PP) and can thus produce higher-quality images. This challenge is for photos that show off what raw capture allows you to do.

First serious camera for me and I ended up wandering around a small wooded lot near a walmart and found this little bug with my 26x superzoomer. First time submitting to contest here on dpreview.
