The photo was taken in a cloudly afternoon and I worked a little more at it in Photoshop for exposure compensation without "burning" the image ... the result is what you see...
I hope you like it !

Great shot Constantin, This insect is a part of the cerambycide familly, for the reste i don't know. Search on the net with this name. Bye

Very nice composition Constantin, as an added bonus you've captured the small cousins as well! Very nicely done, a 8 out of 10.
Best regards,

Hi Constantin,
this is wonderful, I like the colours.
You captured an interesting insect, I thought it must have wings, but there are no wings and I wonder. Very good DOF, thanks for sharing

Very nice! It is a cerambycidae beetle (coleoptera) and its name is Chloropus varius. As you can see, it's one of those who try to pretend they are wasps. This kind of color scheme protects them against predation - to some extent.

Excellent work, pare un fel de croitor daca nu ma insel dar oricum nu am mai vazut ceva cu asa culori. Good job !

Nice capture, Constantin! Sharpness, colours and lights are excelent! Tfs!

Hi Constantin!

I like this image because it is sharp and well exposed. I can see excellent and very subtle details all over the white flower. I like the uncentered composition and the framing.
Good work and TFS.

Hello Cosmin.

Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.
