Hi Lou,welcome back with this sign of springtime! A fantastuc macro of this very small insect that i never seen before,impressive details and bright colors,well done! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hi Laurens,
that is a wonderful macro of this TINY Apion, Laurens. It looks almost transparent and thanks to the good background there is a strong 3D impression. I really have to look up the details of your technique, it seems as if you used an auxiliary flash with diffusor or something. Well done, congratulations.
Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Lou,
Welcome back to TN. Very nice photo, in the 1st moment I didn't think about flash usage, as the whole scene looks very natural and I see no shadows caused by the strong light source. Great composition, sharpness and enchanting color tones. Bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

great to see your picture again, greetings Ori

Hello Laurens,
this is a very impressing masterpiece of professional macrophotography.
The tiny beetle is shown with perfect details all over in true colours in pleasantly soft light.
Also the composition is excellent.
Thank you! With best regards,

Hello Lou,
Beautiful coloured Weevil. In India I've seen black coloured weevil only. Excellent background with perfect exposure. Sharp picture.
Thanks for sharing,
