Ciao Guillermo,una macro davvero eccellente,grandissima qualita' dei dettagli e dei colori e anche una composizione di gran classe.Complimenti anche per l'identificazione! Buona Domenica,LUCIANO

Hola Guillermo,
Me alegra ver de nuevo una foto tuya!... Aquí lo mejor es el POV y el aprovechamiento de las líneas, hace que la foto evolucione deliciosamente al mirarle. Excelente uso del flash, realmente preciso y manteniento detalles excelentes. Pobre bicho!... atrapado si remedio en los tentaculos de esta planta.
Buen trabajo, gracias por compartir. Feliz semana para ti y tu gente. Saludos, Jesús

Precioso trabajo Guillermo. La dispòsición de los elementos buena y desde acertado ángulo. La luz excelente, que permite ver muchos detalles como esos ojos del insecto y la "cabeza" de esos tentáculos muy bien. Supongo que es una planta carnívora, muy exótica para lo que nosotros por estos secanos de Dios"" estamos acostumbrados jajaaja.
Felicidades por tan buen trabajo.
Saludos desde España: Josep Ignasi.

Impressive macro shot! My congratulations!
yes, I like your photo! Well done!

Hallo Guillermo
This is a great macro and indeed a fascinating one. The details captured here is splendid, not only of the mosquito but also the Drosera. The colours and detail of this plant is absolutely a pleasure to look at, as it is so natural and seen with so much clarity. I like the almost shiny appearance. The mosquito's eyes almost looks like sunglasses and I am sure I can see a frown on its forehead. A very, very interesting moment captured and presented in a favourable manner. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards.
