Hi Catherine. You were able to take a fine close up of this ant Lion. From the POV we can see the wing markings which you have taken with good detail and natural colours. May be you will get an inflight picture one day. TFS.

hello my friend Catherine,
bravo for this beautiful macro, unusual POV and scene with splendid composition, it resembles with brick wall, very good clarity, colors output and use of light!
I disagree with you about these bug are graceful! ha ... ha ... :-)
Only you and your artistic sense, may make this creature so ugly, looks beautiful! excellent, great POV, beautiful light, sleek vertical composition! This bug should be thanking you that you've photographed! :-)

Ciao Catherine. Magnificent razor detailed macro shot with intrigant playing of warm light and shadows. The DOF is perfect so like he POV.

ce Grand fourmilion est très interressant et a note est aussi très interressante,
ce n'est pas facile de prendre un insecte en vol, même immobile, c'est une excellente capture avec des details ciselés comme un diamant
ses ailes sont magnifiques
Passe une bonne nuit

We dont often see many Ant-lions (Neuroptera) posts here. These insects very interesting and beautiful looking. I also like to their photography. You greatly captured Palpares libelluloides, one of them, and presented. sharpness of focus, POV/DOF, warm colors and light using great. frame and vertical composition also nice. thanks for sharing, best regards and have a good night
