olá Sergio
P... bicho estranho! :)
Sou seu fã de carteirinha....
um conselho...sempre coloque alguma coisa de texto ou nota sobre o inseto fotografado, vale a pena até pesquisar um pouco mesmo que em portugues.
Mais uma ótima foto, DOF, POV e nitidez.
acho que peguei ojeito, estou somente tentando com minha H1, na verdade funciona com a F117 tb. e realmente fica bom, só preciso ficar mais imóvel ou usar um tripe.
parabens de novo

Fantastic shot! Very sharp details of the this strange looking insect. Well done, perhaps some details of this alien looking insect will be great!

Very sharp capture to reveal the details, nice background too, congrats! You could crop a little on the top portion of the photograph.

Hola Sergio, wow, esta foto atrapa inmediatemente a mis ojos, que extravagante peinado de la cigarra, tal vez por ser domingo. Excelentes detalles de las texturas y brillos de su cuerpo perfectamente captados con la cámara. Felicitaciones por esta foto tan bonita y bien hecha. Saludos Cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*

Wow!That's really amazing! Great detail and a nice capture, Sergio. TFS!

Very interesting insect and I confesed for the first time I see it. May be you could explain me for what are the sensors are? Somthing like giroscopic navigation system, may be? Usualy the nature made these kind of constructions for orientation (like inner ear in mammales).

Hallo Sergio, a strange encounter well captured. Pictures of this kind showing many details of small creatures belong to my favorites. Although small, there is enough space for immnense variation in structure, form and colour. Nice and excellent picture of this cicada.

Hi Sergio,
Great picture! This is a Bocydium sp. (Membracidae).

Best regards,

hola Sergio,
Que extraño bicho!! parece un helicóptero o con cuernos embolados.
La composición y los detalles son muy buenos; como también lo son los colores y el uso del flash.
Por supuesto, esto es una sorpresa y una novedad para mi.
