New year Special.

Nymphs of Brown Stink Bug.
Found this nymphs around the eggs that they hatched in our kitchen near the door that opens to the backyard. There are dozen of them and so are he eggs. The circle is around 12mm across. It was evening and used flash as main light because they may wander at any time..they didn't and next day I relocated them to my backyard.
I lost my greeting image, next time will be careful, thanks for your comments on that image.

with regards,

Dear Nagaraj,

Hope you are doing fine and happy new year to you as well.This is a wonderful shot, taken at the right moment, Joydeb is right, it looks like a garland. I appreciate your note and the amazing power of observation you posses. Thanks a lot for sharing a wonderful photo of these babies with us.....take care....warm regards/Abid

Ciao Nagaraj, very interesting macro, lovely composition with beautiful graphic effect, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, Happy New Year 2013, ciao Silvio

Hi Nagaraj,

12 mm dimension to compose a great photo, well managed the flash, a little animal that certainly nobody would like to host at home (least of all in the vegetable garden, it's extremely harmful), but that, at least on this occasion, constitutes a good photographic subject.



Wow Nagaraj, what a picture! You have captured these insects brilliantly. The colours are marvellous, the details, like the markings on their shields are just perfect. Thanks for sharing a very fascinating image. Best regards.
