Hello Hernan!
Very good macro with great details! I also like contrast between aphids and surface of the leaf.
The object is also interesting - mailny because of its size (and because of that rarely presented on TN).
TFS and all the best,

Hi Hernan....I like your homemade macro :) what a good idea...did you do this one the same as before??? I think it works just great. Excellent detail and colours. The black legs, eyes and antenna really show up well. I'm totally impressed.

Great shot Dear Hernan. People should try this at home :)) The details are amazing.

Hola Hernán,
Que bueno resulta ese macro casero!
Muy buenos los detalles conseguidos en los pequeños isectos, casi traslúcidos.
La textura de la hoja es extraordinaria.
Me gusta mucho la composición que armaste con la dirección marcada por el tallo de la hoja.
Buen trabajo y gracias por compartirlo.
Un gran saludo,

Hello Hernan,
Il y a de la vie dans cette image. Cela bouge de toute part. Excellent macro nous montrant ces petites bestioles comme on ne les voit pas à l'oeil nu. Belles couleurs aussi.
Bonne journée

Ciao Hernàn:
Eccellente nitideza in tutta la compo. Anche splèndida la foglia, i colori e la presentazione. Molto buona questa foto.

Ciao Hernan, splendida macro con un grande branco di aspidi, grande nitidezza e meravigliosi dettagli, bravo!, ciao Silvio

Very good closeup macro of these very tiny subjects Hernan.
Great detail, color, exposure, DOF, and I like the angled leaf they're on...Hey, it's an uphill battle right? ;}
Nicely done & TFS.

Hernan, this is a very nice photo.

Great colors and sharpness. I like contrast too.

Hola Hernán,
Hoy elegí esta como podría haber elegido otra cualquiera de tu galería, la combinacion de colores, la luz y la nitidez son excelentes. Un cordial saludo

Hello Hernan,
There are not too many TN shots showing aphids. So just this subject makes your contribution very special. Also you managed to achieve a very good quality of this shot. Very nice focus, DOF and details. I would only frame it more to the right to avoid showing the surface behind the leaf.
Best greetings and TFS!

Hola Hernan.

Curiosa la foto, parece tal cual una invasion, se aprecian todos con mucha nitidez.

Jose Luis.
