I hink bugs and beetles realy swift in their movement.
This one did not allow me to have a few shot of him. He just perched on the tip fow a few seconds, then I flew off.
You could see he was just about to open its wings. Or was he showing off his inner brown wings?

Hi Foozi,

A nice satured colored beetle,there is unfortunately some noise in this capture (berhaps due to heavy crop or oversharpening),the composition is well set up against a nice colored brown BG,thanks for sharing


Hi foozi,
this is a superb capture of a beautiful colored bugs.
Well done

Hello Foozi,
a great capture of this colourful insect taken from a good dorsal POV with fine details, i like the contrast of the colours and the pose of the bug against a good neutral BG in a nice composition.
Best regards.

Hello Foozi,
very nice picture of this beetle! Beautiful composition and vivid colors.

Best regards, Leonid

This is a pretty bug, Foozi, and you were lucky to capture it before it flew off. I can see that its outer hard wings have alreay opened slightly for the flight.
Good that you got one of its eyes in focus.
There is some noise in the BG. Let me correct it through a workshop.

Hi Foozi,
Another amazing bug.
You find some fantastic species over there in Malaysia.
A great capture of this one,even though it was moving fast.
Well done.

Hola Foozi.

Llamativo escarabajo que no se estila por estos lugares.

Un saludo.
Jose Luis.

Hi Foozi.
Very nice picture of a cute beetle. I have never met this species. Its "clothes" and colouration are amazing as well as the whole scene created only with alone twig and insect. I like composition and framing of the image, impressive sunlight and very suitable smooth BG. My best wishes and TFS.

Hi Foozi,

This composition is very nice, shows the use of the Rule of Thirds to a degree, resulting in an interesting image. The simple, out-of-focus background works well to isolate the point of interest very nicely.


Hello Foozi
very beautiful shot of this beetle with great composition
i like the vivd yellow of his body, i have never seen a beetle with such a color
superb contrast with neutral BG
very well done

Hello Foozi !
He's such a cute little bug, I love his bright yellow color ! I know how hard it can be to take pictures of beetles (they are so fast) but you did great job here - details, colors, composition, POV, everything is very nice. The noisy BG is a bit dstubing, and that's why I also like Ram's WS. But your picture is great also very well done !

wonderful capture!!! clear and well composed. You have a real nack with macro shots - keep posting :)

Salam Foozi
what a beautiful beetle species and its great macro-shot. I see it newly. You captured it on top of wooden stick, with a great POV/OOF and composition. Plain BG, sharp focus and colors superb. thanks for sharing, my friend

Hello Foozi,

Seems like this is a pollen magnet? Don't tell me this is the natural colouring??
Anyway, the little fellow is captured with good details, amazing depth feeling in the frame!

Hi Foozi,
Wonderful shot of this tiny bug with such lovely colours. The BG contrasts well and I like your POV and DOF. Excellent lighting and composition.
