HI Stone,a fantastic macro showing us this curious cicada,the green veins of wings are amazing and the sharpness is absolutely perfect,very well done! Have a nice weekend and thanks,LUCIANO

Hello Stone,
Well captured this fly. Good details and colour. Use at least f/8 or f/11 and you will get more details and DOF. Framing could have been better in vertical way; mainly when subject structure and it is sitting in vertical form.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Stone

Excellent macro of this insect, with fine POV,
great focus, sharpness, details, and contrast, TFS
