bella immagine e titolo pen scelto, peccato il fuoco 2 mm troppo indietro!

Hello Aleksander,
this is great macro. Excellent sharpness, details and great colours and lighting. Great POV and framing too. This is a great composition. Thank you for posting.

Do you find it hard with these small cameras to get the right focus, I find my macros are hit or miss when the lcd screen says otherwise.
Your DOV is just behind his head, although its a fantastic photo it may have looked better with the head in focus. I have a similar shot.

HI Aleksander,
an insect on this echinacea - that's the best motive you can get in my opinion.
This flower is so wonderful, also the nice bumble-bee and the BG seems to shine by it's own. Excellent arrangement, I like it

Hi Aleksander

Very beautiful macro you managed here!
Outstanding POV, very good DOF, splendid colors, great sharpness and lighting. Also very well framed and composed.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Alek,
I like the POV, color, exposure, detail, and overall composition very much. I think it would be better if your point of focus was the head here.
Well done and TFS!

Una gran composición Aleksander, que aunque no tenga la nitidez o el foco perfecto, impacta por su fuerte colorido y contrastes obtenidos, además de un excelente POV.
Me agrada el resultado final.
Saludos... Ricardo

A great composition Aleksander that although it doesn't have the clarity or the perfect focus, impact for their strong coloring and contrast obtained, besides an excellent POV.

Magnifiques couleurs, superbe BG et prise de vue originale pour cette macro. Dommage que la mise au point n'ait pas été faite sur la tête de l'insecte!

Very good shot ! I love the composition and the warm colors. It's sharp and well exposed. Thanks Aleksander !


Hi Aleksander,
I find the bumblebees hard to capture well since they are so febrile, but this is excellent!
Macro work very well done, with sharp good details in the insect...
The flower provides a fine environment for photography!
