Hi Christian,

wunderbare Aufnahme mit guter Schärfe und natürlichen Farben. Hammer was Dein Handy kann!


Hallo Christian
This is a wonderful sight and an absolute viewing pleasure. Wow! I like this image a lot. There is such a lot of details and features here to appreciate. The white crinkled tissue like petals is so lovely. The metallic beetle against the white flower displays beautifully and the details are so well seen. The yellow anthers are so petite and really eye-catching. The water droplets are an additional bonus. This image is what I call a PPP - Pretty, perfect, picture and very soft on the eye. Thanks for sharing. I also want to use this opportunity to thank you for adding me to your list of favourites. Your kind gesture is much appreciated. Best regards.

Hi Christian,

This is an amazing snap. Its all in one. Beautiful white flower with yellow middle part. Lovely dew drops on it and the metallic green coloured insect on it. Superb ! Congratulations!

Hello Christian,
Very nice photo in beautiful light and contrasting colours. Good sharpness and POV. The drops are a nice bonus.

Hi Christian,
das ist fantastisch - die Tropfen, der Glitzerkäfer (Rosenkäfer) und erstklassiges Licht. Wirklich toll gesehen und super fotografiert, lieben Dank

Hello Christian,
Interesting insect with beautiful metallic colours.
The water drops are great.

Hola Christian

Gracias por tu comentario, efectivamente no fue muy facil, pero hay que intentarlo.

Esta imagen que has conseguido si es fantastica, ya solo la propia planta que sus hojas parecen de papel y su centro que es precioso, le añades este insecto con tonalidades de color verde metálico que es verdaderamente una obra de arte.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hi Christian,

You have very beautiful flowers in your gallery but this one jumped out at me. It has so many wonderful elements adding up to a exceptionally pretty picture. I love the lovely white petals, the wonderful water droplets and the super sharp green metallic beetle. Nice colors, details and composition.
