[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This little dude was sitting on his rock on the peaceful dust road. Although I was several orders of magnitude bigger than him, this little bug made me feel as an intruder in his quiet end of the afternoon sunbathing time.

Post processing :
I choose do desaturate a little (-40%) the picture except for the insect and his rock.

Divertida captura Lau... la posicion del insecto y la sombra que origina son muy bonitas.
Atinada perspectiva y encuadre, con colores suaves y al igual que el foco.
Me atreví a realizar un trabajo... espero sea de tu agrado.

Amused capture Lau... the position of the insect and the shade that originates are very pretty.
Accurate perspective and frame, with smooth colors and like the focus.
I dared to make a workshop, I hope you like it.

I like this one, it's minimalistic in a very nice way ;-) Not so many colours, but those that are there go well together, focus spot on the subject and nicely brought forward in the frame

Nicely composed and cropped. Good title and the shot really seems to tell that story. But what is it for an animal? Not that it matters - he just looks so much like a cartoon character.

I like this shoot and I like the workshop RAP did. Well done.

Nice little weevil Lau I particularly like the shadow it is showing us

Funny and well done.

Seguro que si, atrévanse a quitársela.

Muy bonita toma, divertida y tierna para mi.
Me encantó.


muy buena foto...al parecer se trata de un coleoptero de la familia de los curculionidos, por favor que alguien me lo ratifique

A great shot, nicley caught...and I love the caption

HAha.. THe conquerer! This picture is quite hilarious.
Anyway, the lighting was pretty harsh but the picture turned out good. Good eye to have seen this.


That's a cool shot with an even cooler description! Very nicely captured. It definitely comes through with a story here. Well done.


One heck of a photo. I love pictures of animals that are showing a bit of character. Check out my llama picture. Nice job.

Selam LAu,
mükemmel detaylar, harika renkler.
En güzel dileklerimle hoşcakalın.
