Amazing insects and fantastic photo Jesus! As usually the composition, the colors and the sharpness are excellent! I am looking forward to see the next one!

Hi Jesus,
excellent depth of field. Very good sharpness and details. I like this composition.
Have a nice weekend,

Ciao Jesus, gran bella coppia di piccoletti in piacevole attivitŕ, la tua nuova lente funziona molto bene, ottimi dettagli e splndida nitidezza, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio

Now there is something I can learn from .... I mean, lets just look at that flawless execution. Those little fellows are really tiny. I know that! Cool! How colorful those Leafhoppers are...like anything I now from here .... we have blue colored, green, brown ...etc,. etc, but nothing like that!!! Good day my old friend Jesus Linares...hope you well....bravo! The use of fill in flash....just fantastic! f/20 ...well, I am not big fan of extreme apertures, but here it works! The white balance ...OK, in South America the Sun is shining differently, so I surrender on that issue ;)..at least the greens are not bathed in yellow! Perfect POV, DOF, S and C (sharpness and composition) ;) Love it!

Hello Jesús,
A very well taken and interesting macro of these two Leaf Hoppers in copula.
The use of flash is excellent to show fine colours without too much reflection and with superp sharpness and DOF. It would be interesting to know how large this species is.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend,
With best regards,

Hello Jesus,
Nice to see a picture from you again. Missed some of yours because I was absent too. Like you I find Leafhoppers very interesting creatures, difficult however to make good shots because of their size. These two have a lot of fun and have a most beautiful coloration. Very good sharpness with the focus perfectly on the eyes of the insects.
Have a nice weekend

Excellent macro from a good point of view. Very good detail, good focus and exposure.
Interesting insects.
regards yiannis

Ciao Jesus!
A essere sincera preferisco le farfalle agli insetti:)) ma devo dire che questi non sono poi male. Penso sia merito della tua foto: splendida la luminositŕ che rende brillanti i colori e magnifici i riflessi sul corpo e soprattutto sugli occhi.
Nitidezza e dettagli impressionanti.
Complimenti amico mio e TFS.
Ciao e buona doemica! Vanda

Hello Jesús

Ciao Jesus. Un'eccezionale composizione e dettaglio strepoitoso. Magnifici i colori. Complimenti amico mio!
