[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My 1200th post is the picture of a tiny red bug taken two days ago at my native place in the Himalayas. I went there to see my younger sister who lost her husband ten days ago.
I do not know the identity of this very small red bug about 5mm in length. It is a macro shot I tried with my Sigma 105mm lens. Took many shots but this one turned out to be better.
There was lot of noise in the BG which I removed at the PP stage.
The shot was taken hand-held from a very close distance.
Thanks for looking.

Dear Ram,
What an achievement! Congratulations to your 1200th post. You have seen this tiny shiny red bug, even if it was "minuscule". The contrast with the green leaf must have caught your eye. And its carapace was shining in the sun..just for you :-) Fine composition and better sharpness would have been difficult to reach.
Thanks for all your interesting postings
Kind regards

Congratulations Ram on posting 1200 images on TN!
I can't say I've seen them all but it is a phenomenal number, most of which have made a great contribution to this site!
This is a superb capture to mark the occasion, that of a colourful Leaf Beetle species (Chrysomelidae).
The POV is great against the OOF greenery with which it contrasts with fine sharpness and attractive colours.
Yet another of your images that is great to view!.
Thanks for this and your contributions and I hope you will be as active on TN for a long time to come!
Best regards,

Dear Ram,
my congratulations to your 1200th post to TN! That tiny beetle of the Chrysomelidae family is a gem, presented in a strikingly simple and clear way with the difficulties of close approach well mastered by you. I love the deeply shining natural colours and the smoothly structured and gently curved background. Your deep love of nature has found its expression in that image in a most appealing way. Thank you! With and all my best wishes to you,
