Hi Sergio,
a very unique insect well taken and well presented. The white is well balanced and
beautiful contrast on the green leaf.


Excelente encuadre y buenos contrastes. Es evidente la dificultad para esta captura por el color, la luz y el pequeño tamaño del insecto y aún así el resultado es más que correcto.
