Good morning Ron,
what a perspective
what a capture
Have a beautiful day
Nice capture of the pair of bugs at the right time. The leaf of green color provides a nice backdrop for the colored bug, although I think the exposure is slightly UE here especially on the bugs and shadow which could be caused by the contrasting light+shadow.

Very nice close-up of these bugs, very sharp, especially considering that it was hand-held.

Great timing to get these two at just the right moment. They are very attractive bugs with those wonderful colors. They look terrific on the green leaf.
Excellent photo of this insect, the POV you choose
it is giving a beautiful play of shadow and light,
great DOF, excellent focus, sharpness, details, TFS
