Hi Michael,
It's great to see a post from you on TN again.
This is a white tree nymph (idea leuconoe)
Good detail, colours and sharpness. Composition and lighting are good. Good POV and framing.
Thanks for posting, have a great Easter weekend.

Good shot Michael. Well composed and good exposure. DOF could have been a bit wider imo. Details on the head and body are very sharp. Well done & TFS!

TFS. : )

Michael, maybe, I'd try to add a little bit more of saturation, but it's just an opinion.

Great pov and composition; I like sharpness too.

Welcome back.
