[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A photo taken past April 2, taking advantage of the holiday in commemoration to the taking the Falklands and deads in that heroic. Besides to take photos with my daughter from the frog that I also captured in the school we left to take a walk by the lagoon to take kills and I took the camera as usual. I took some photos from the lagoon, my family and insects. Between those insects my daughter Jimena again found an individual of this species that does not seem to abound here, on the lagoon walls. I captured it and I put it in a Pepsi little bottle that was of the exit and we took it to house. There I made it put on a branch of acacio small ball that is going to be roasted grass of the close-range fire, taking advantage of last solar rays in the garden. I took several from this bug. Of bottom one of the outer walls without revoking is still seen (unfortunately the majority), for that reason that orange color. I took many photos from diverse angles by 15 minutes until it was decided to fly. First it raises in vertical happening as soon as the ceiling, soon seems to vacillate and lines up bordering almost all my land until the house of the neighbor, where it seems to want to return to the backyard... until it suddenly appeared a benteveo and in the heat of flight captured it and it ate it after settling in one of scarse TV antennas that still last in the town. It gave a little pain the tragic end me of my pretty model, but I was witness of an accurate hunting in the heat of flight of a benteveo (Pitangus sulfuratus)

Una foto que tomé el pasado día 2 de abril, aprovechando el feriado en conmemoración a la toma de las Malvinas y a los caidos en esa gesta heroica.
Además de tomar fotos con mi hija de la ranita que capturé en la escuela también salimos a pasear por la laguna a tomar mate y me llevé como de costumbre la cámara. Tomé algunas fotos de la laguna, la familia e insectos. Entre esos insectos mi hija Jimena encontró otra vez un individuo de esta especie que no parece abundar aquí, sobre el paredón de la laguna. Lo capturé y lo metí en una botellita de Pepsi que quedó de la salida y lo llevamos a casa. Allí lo hice posar sobre una rama de acacio bolita que va a ser pasto del fuego próximos asados, aprovechando los últimos rayos solares en el jardín. Tomé varias de este bichín. De fondo se ve una de las paredes exteriores todavía sin revocar (por desgracia la mayoría), por eso ese color anaranjado.
Tomé muchas fotos de diversos ángulos por 15 minutos hasta que se decidió volar. Primero sube en vertical pasando apenas el techo, luego parece vacilar y enfila bordeando casi todo mi terreno hasta la casa del vecino, donde parece querer retornar al patio...hasta que de repente apareció un benteveo y en pleno vuelo lo capturó y lo comió luego de posarse en una de las escasísimas antenas de TV que todavía perduran en el pueblo.
Me dió un poco de pena el trágico final de mi linda modelito, pero fui testigo de una certera cacería en pleno vuelo de un benteveo

Hernan,
What a great shot! I especially like the background which lends drama to the composition. Nice sharp focus of subject enhanced by low depth of field.
Well done!

Hi Hernan.
Brilliant shot of the wonderful beetle at amazing scenery. Colour palette and lights of the image are fantastic as well as razor sharpness of the insect image. Inclined structure f the image, direct POV are spot on too. Well done and kind regards.

Ciao Hernan,una foto davvero spettacolare,incredibile qualita' dei dettagli e dei colori,molto bello lo sfondo rosso soft,davvero un ottimo lavoro anche per le note,grazie e buona settimana,Luciano

Hallo Hernan
You have captured this insect in a great moving pose with excellent clarity. I think if you have waited a second or two longer you would have photographed it with a paw in the air. The markings and patterns on the body are so beautiful and impressive, not to mention the fine hairs on the body. The golden coloured surface, the colour of the background and the greyish insect is a lovely combination of colours and blend in well with one another. Your framework is very well done. Your display is greatly handled. Thanks for sharing, this image but also your interesting note, as I found it a pleasure to read.
Best regards
Anna

Clear sharp details Hernan, great POV & DOF.
I like your composition, it works well here :)

Bonjour Hernan,
Il me semble que j'ai manqué quelques unes de tes photos. J'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir à lire ton commentaire sur cette image. Excellente présentation avec bonne netteté, une habile composition et un très bel arrière-plan.
Un grand merci
