Hi Siggi,
diese Kerle treten irgenwie immer paarweise auf, hab' ich auch schon beobachten können. Das Bild ist super, Unifarbener Hintergrund, nichts lenkt von diesen farbenfrohen Zwillingen ab.

Hi MF Siggi,

An outstanding close-ıup capture of these two beautifully coloured insect from top POV with excellent DOF, fine details and delightful composition.
TFS and Cheers,


Hallo Siegfried,

Great macro capture of the lovely frog-hoppers with superb details!

The blurry BG is making wonders here by giving great contrast to your subject. The colors are very natural, captured with great sharpness and from a well thought POV.

Well done!

best regards,
