Hola José,
Beautiful macro with great details. Colors are gorgeous, as well as sharpness. Probably the composition might be more effective with a little more space between the red berry and the edge of the frame at right, because the left side of the image looks a bit blank this way.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Beautiful catch, well lit also nice focusing and composed TSF.

Lovely clear shot of this insect. I'm curious about the red areas on the sides - do they have some special purpose?

Hi Jose,

The tomatoes are framing well the insecté The point of view is showing the details of the Vine hawk-moth. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
