Hello Silvio,
a beautifully composed picture with colourful bug couple embedded in the smooth flower. Dpeth of field is very narrow so that only the bugs' surfaces appear sharp and, thus, stand out clearly.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Silvio

A great capture with great subject on these bugs. Your composition is super! BG, saturation o colors, sharpness and focus... all things were made as the best by you. Bravo and TFS. With my best wishes...

Hi Silvio,
WOW!!! Outstanding colors and detail...Really great exposure...Very well captured...


Ciao Silvio,
molto belli insetti, chinches in Spagnuolo, ma non so come chiamarle in italiano. essi hanno un disegno coi belli colori. Il foco con scarsa profondità, ma interessante foto.

Hello Silvio,
It's not just for the bugs that love is in the air, but also for people when the weather is nice and sun is shining :)
Beautiful macro you are showing us here again today.
Most wonderful, colors, details and patterns at the back of the bugs.
Sharpness and lighting are perfect.
Excellent work.
Thanks for sharing.
Best wishes,

Hola Silvio,
preciosa macro,
sensacional color y bello pov,
hermosa composición...

Hi Silvio,
Love sweet love..or "ah l'amore" as you say..
I like the composition and these two on the dandelion..it makes a nice soft bed for these two perfectly matched lovers ;}
Well done!

A superlative composition with the mating bugs, Silvio. I like your stance from the top. The details and colours on the bugs are simply fantastic.
Well done and have a great day!

teste ed antenne sfocate. un diaframma più chiuso aiuterebbe ad ottenere una scena corretta in tutte le sue parti.
ho visto che chi scatta macro difficilmente lavora con f 8, il più delle volte è su f11, molte altre su f16. difficilmente l'ho visto su f22 (problemi di diffrazione suppongo). f4 e 5.6 dedicate ad esaltare il piccolo particolare (solo la testa a.e.)

ciao, mario

Bonjour Silvio,
Trop belles ces deux punaises en effervescence..
Magnifiques couleurs-terre. Un ensemble bien poétique malgré le sujet.

bonjour silvio
je pense que le reglage du diaphragme etait un peu juste,mais par contre les dessins sur les elitres sont tres bien et les couleurs sont jolies.

hi SIlvio, your butterfly seria is excelent but this two small insact make me feel you are waiting to make love ;-))
excelent clearnes and good details.

Linda explosión de colores con excelente enfoque y composición. Buenos colores y contrastes. Quizá un pequeño exceso de brillo en el insecto de la derecha pero nada grave jajaja.
Un abrazo desde España Silvio.
