Hi Laurens.
What an attractive BG for your wonderful close-up. Despite its brightness it does not distract attention from main subject. The beetle is reproduced precisely with all details including the smallest ones. POV and composition are also impressive. Compliments and best regards.

Hi Lou,
Ja, ja we hebben het weer voor elkaar. Alweer naast elkaar.
Mooie foto van deze kever. Erg goede scherpte en details. Prima compositie. Ik weet eigenlijk niet zo goed wat ik van de rode achtergrond kleur moet denken. Het fleurt wel op, maar het overheerst ook wel. Ook de foto's in de workshop zijn erg goed.

Ciao Laurens. Fantastic BG for this small one in good details. Exciting colours.


Hallo Lou,

je verrast me elke keer opnieuw.
nu weer met zo'n onbekend insect.
Goede detailering en schrpte met prachtige kleuren.

A fine capture of M. quadripunctata taken with excellent sharpness and colours in a pleasing composition. Whatever the red BG is, it makes an interesting contrast of colours.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hola laurens

Unos colores intensos, aprovechando el fondo de la composición perfectamente sincronizada con los colores tambien intensos del insecto y de la flor. Una imagen muy bien lograda, y con muy buena nitidez.

Un saludo de Antonio

Impresionante y original gama de colores Laurens.

Hi Lou,

Three wonderful views of this beautiful beetle. I don't know how you picked which one to post! They are all stunning with the wonderful red background. I must ask you what it is. The beetle on the matching flower is excellent with superfine details and marvelous colors. I love the composition too.

Hello Laurens,
details and colors fantastic for this insect. A very good image. Regards, Paolo

My dear friend Lou
You prove with this glorious image that Dutch people be also romantic and hot blooded!

The striking colours are stunning and I can well imagine your joy with this image!

The mediterranean light/sun obviously helped with the happy combination adding the right mood.

I look at your work and smile...so, I HAVE to add it to my favorites:-))

Enjoy the rest of your day and have a happy week


As you are ONLY two images allowed for the workshop - you could do a collage to show us some more MYLABRIS QUADRIPUNCTATA
