Dont know this red bug. If anyone knows it pls feel free to post it.

it has a flat circular body and its color is like a crab. This bug also has no wings. the diameter of its body is about 10mm.

got this bug from a plant at the back of our office. I was so excited to shoot it but the lens Im using is the 18-70mm. I guess have to plan now to buy my own micro lens:) Shot w/ RAW, resized to 6016x4000 using Nikon Capture (but still quite blurd) then cropped to TN size then converted to jpeg.

the red bug is so strange!
but the image is not good! looks like a 20x digital zoom!!! (joke)

Agreed, the bug is strange, but the image could be a lot better, especially from a D70!

Hi Chito, It looks like a land bug of some kind. A good place to start for the ID would be the family Coreidae.

The photo is not so good, the focus is very soft and almost all the details have been lost. I've seen much better from you.

Chito, I would like to politely point out that you have posted 22 photos here on TN yet have only provided 3 critiques. Without people critiquing others this site will collapse. Please ensure it's growth by provding critques for your fellow posters.

It looks like a tick to me. Man I hate them! But then, this picture lacks sharpness. Maybe you can select 'sharpen' filter in Photoshop.

Hi Chito what a strange and interesting bug that is. Wonderful colour but it lacks sharpness as do most of your posts. I could understand if you had a faulty camera but the Nikon D70! One tip I would give you because of digital I usually take at least 3 shots of each subject and changing aperture and checking focus will always get you the sweet one. Keep posting and Il be checking ;)
