Hello Luciano,
focus on the bug's surface is excellent. Sharp details are seen here. I think that you could have achieved more sharp structures by selecting a smaller aperture, f/14 would have been possible considering your actual exposure time of 1/500s.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Luciano

Excellent macro of this insect that could
easily be camouflaged with its environment,
fine POV from above to show its shape and patterns, TFS
