Very strange & Cool looking little nymphs Jitti,
I like this one alot :)

hello jitti,
fine capture, liked the focus, dof and the composition, looks quite interesting,
tfs & regards

Hello again!
As you know from my last comment I am really happy when I can watch something new, especially if it is something with entomology :) This picture is even more interesting that the earlier one - mainly because insect details are much more visible!
For me this is just favourite photo!
Friendly yours,

Ciao Jitti,
una foto davvero eccezionale, la tua!
Ci fai conoscere degli insetti veramente strani e bizzarri, che si scambiano a prima vista per fili di erba secca.
Non li conoscevo affatto, grazie ancora per questa bella foto.

fantastic, is it mimicry of lychens ? Ori

Hi Jitti,

I've never seen these little Nymphs before. How strange looking they are. Beautiful shot - they are nice and sharp and show off well against the stem and background.

Hi Jitti,
This is even a better shot than your previous one and the details and tack sharp and much pronounced. Great use of natural lighting and the Nymphs have such weird and interesting forms. It would be so interesting to find out what they change to in adult form. Hope you keep track and bring it to us too later. Nice diagonal composition. Kudos.

Hi Jitti

Great shot - and thanks for uploading it - I would have assumed these were flowers or fungi if you had not said. Good lighting and detail.


Hello Jitti,

Great shot of these nymphs. Good sharpness. Good light. Good contrast against the dark background.
Very well done,

Hello Jitti,
Interesting to see how these Mealybug nymphs have developed compared with your previous posting.
Once again the sharpness and composition are excellent.
Now they look like dancers at the Rio carnival!
Thanks for sharing this one,
Best wishes, Ivan

Hello JC,
Now that is a crowded street!!
Amazing capture, as they look like nothing I have seen...
An interesting capture with great details in the insects, presented in an attractive composition!

Witaj Jitti,
Incredibly interesting! They look how flowers. Surely then pests, but they have unparalleled beauty. Very good picture. I know how to make white exhibit heavily.
Gratuluje i pozdrawiam - Roma
