Hallo Matteo
This is a striking insect and the hairiness is very "catching". The contrast of the black and yellow is great and the clarity of the yellow paws with its black tips is beautiful and well seen. The wings remind me of a fishnet and the texture of it is lovely to look at. Thanks for sharing this fascinating insect. Best regards.

Ciao Matteo!
Your gallery payid more attention but the true is that last days I had no time to write some comments to your pictures. For example this lovely Neuroptera species: even if this Libelloides is not very fast creature is it still rather difficult to photograph (I had possibilities to observe it in SE Europe some times). You presented it in very good contrast (only F6.3!!!) and with very good position - in the top of grass. Top quality photo also because of very good DOF and sharpness.
Maybe only a note could be a little longer ;)
