Hello Victor,

You have made a very fine close-up of this insect. You have focused well on it getting most of it's body in focus and rendering sharp body's surface. You have made good use of the light getting fine, natural looking colors with a reachness of color tones.

Thank you for sharing,

hi victor,
very impressive image and new speices to see. i agree with everbody but i feel its too close to comfort. bit more space and applying rule of one third would have made this one more interesting photographically. tfs.

Hi Victor,
what a beauty - clear, sharp with lovely colours and details.
Best wishes and TFS

Victor excellent shot of this insect! great colours and sharpness. I like the way you cropped it!
