[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Looking for something nice around the vegetable garden, I found this green bug on the kale´s leaf and took some pictures. Interesting that, one day after I went to the same place and the bug was still there, in the same leaf. I have to thanks to my cousin Fabiano, because we was at home in the farm house and it was almost midnight when he invited me to go out and look for some bugs or spiders. Not bad, don´t you think?

Hi Jose,
Wonderful picture of this perfectly camouflage bug. Sharpness and composition are excellent. Water droplets add attractiveness.
It is worth going out at night to get some great photos. Very well done and TFS.

Hi Jose,
awesome macro shot my friend.
I love this crispy clear sharpness,focus,vivid green,focus,frame and dof.TFS

extraordinaire,les gouttes d'eau sont tres petites a voir par rapport a la punaise et pourtant elles sont tres nettes,il fallait avoir l'oeil pour trouver cette insecte vert sur une feuille de la meme couleur.
