Bonsoir Benyamin
C'est une excellente composition avec ce beau macro de cette belle libellule! La présentation très jolie avec de belles couleurs, ainsi que les détails. Merci pour le partage .
Au revoir et Bravo ....JP

This is an incredible shot, simply awesome. I love the composition and the close crop - very effective indeed and has a sci-fi feel about it.

Super stuff, well done!

Hi Benyamin,
Impressive macro shot focusing on the eyes. The whole face is rendered sharply with generous depth of field. I like the uncluttered, diagonal composition. Well done. Regards,

Hello Benyamin,
Superb details and great colours!
I appreciated the diagonal created by the wings, point of view is very good and gives a dynamic composition!

Hi Ben. Excellent macro of this insect face. It shows incredible details. Beautiful work. Murray.

You have the perfect angle and crop for this. Great compo. Seeing this sure makes me want a macro lens. This is a winner photo.

I think it's beacuse of the colour and those huge eyes that I think this is cute.
Great job on the focussing and the light is perfect too.
Well done!
