a beautiful frontal view of the bug. The colour contrast between bug and flower is nice, but this is not alone your merit**. However, you selected just this superb point of view and achieved a pretty good composition.
Best wishes, Peter

Very good macro. Very sharp and the contrasting colours make for good photo. DOF and composition is well done.

Everything about this photo is great. Clarity, charpness, DOF, color saturation, lighting, and composition is awesome. Looks like a soldier staring you down ready for battle.

this is a most powerful and iconical frontal view!
Perfect result from a daring approach, excellent details, glorious colours, and great rhythm of composition.
A marvellous stage for a cute little stink bug.
Thank you! Best regards,

I like this face to face picture. Seem that this stink bug is cautious about your approach. POV, DOF, exposure, and sharpness are great. Crisp clear with nice colors. Good technique in setting WB - a new knowledge for me.

Superb point of view to capture the frontal view of this green bug, Mark. The capture is in near-perfect geometrical shape, and I like it very very much :-)!
Besides, the image is excellent in terms of sharpness, colours and overall composition.
Thanks, my friend, and take care.

Really a great shot here. The sharpness and clarity is very good. You can also see the simple eyes of the bug and also i like the contrast. These leaves really made the insect stand out.
PS you should really get yourself a monopod ;)

All your pictures left me speechless. They're all wonderful and really bring out the beauty of Malta. This one in particular, I really like. The features of the insect are really sharp and clear! Congrats and keep up the good work!
