Hello Christodoulos.
Amazing colors of this fine specimen. The metallic shine is really interesting of something I haven't seen before. Beautiful focus with sharp details.
Thanks and kind regards.

Hello Christodoulos

Great macro of this insect, with a fine POV, and DOF,
for the framing, if you could do an cropping
to remove the off-focus area of the foreground
that is disturbing for the view a little bit, TFS

Hello Christodoulos,
A very colourful species of Chrysura well taken in this macro with top sharpness and natural colours.
These guys are not easy to photograph as they are very active and the shiny uneven furfaces of the body make sharp focusing difficult.
So this is special!
Thanks and enjoy your weekend,

Hello Christodoulos,
These parasitic wasps are of great beauty, we have some species here around too. Not very big they are, we easily can overlook them. Best sharpness, showing so well the beautiful metallic coloration. Excellent shot as usual. Interesting posting too.

τα χρώματα πραγματικά συναρπάζουν, πολύ καλή προσέγγιση!
και πάλι καλημέρα Χριστόδουλε
