[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Christian Pourre (TAZ - www.treknature.com/members/TAZ/), one of the TrekNature members, wrote, in a comment about a photo of mine, it's the bugs' season in Brazil.

Indeed. It's been easy to notice many of them are coming back after being away during some time. It's still winter here in Brazil, and when spring comes (next September), I think the bugs will be all around again in great amounts. Another reason for me to think so is this: I started trying to take wildlife shots last year, during spring. I remember there were bugs galore wherever I used to go.

I hope I keep on finding them this year.

Ola Livio
Excelente !
Adoro este tipo de fotografias.

Hi Livio, beautifully sharp image of this bug (what is it btw?). It is nice and clear against the dark BG so great use of DOF. I like your composition, it works well, TFS :)

Very good macro, Livio.
The composition are very good. The colours are nice and I like the DOF too.
Very well done.

Great DOF, light, color and detail Livio. Very nice POV x two..(the bugs) ;-) Well done.

Superb POV and composition Livio! This bug must be real adventurer or maybe bungee jumper ;-) Fantastic details on bug and leaf, BG works very well. Another sunny and lovely shot!
