Hola amigo Jesús!Que tal?
Otro super macro con tu marca personal.Quiero decir:una hermosa imagen con una grande nitidez y excelente uso del flash.Gracias por compartir!
Buen domingo para tí y todos de tu linda familia!

Jesus, you are a magician, man! The exif data you provide with the picture is a mantra I can never reach the depth of. That plus the Tokina macro lens has created this miracle in nature imagery.
My old ageing eyes could never have perceived such sharpness and colours, so this picture has bestowed me with a magic eye-sight.
Thanks a million for sharing this wonder.

Another impressive super macro Jesus! The composition, the BG, the colours and the sharpness are excellent.

Hello Jesús,
A very fine macro of this Leaf Hopper. The lateral POV is perfect and the DOF great to give almost total top sharpness of the subject.
The use of flash is excellent to produce no reflections and fine natural colours.
A very professional piece of work!
Thanks for sharing it and enjoy your Sunday,

Bea ....utiful! Too Bea...utiful in fact! Good day my old friend Jesus! Hope you are well! Right!
Very refined approach I can say! Breathtaking clarity which brings unimaginable level of detail from the tiny bug's body! Bravo Jesus Linares! This is really spectacular. The one issue however which seems unresolved at least in my eyes is the .....White balance issue my friend! OK, ...before you say..'I do not agree' please just have a look my "blue" ( gosh ...I love this) Workshop!

P.S. Full smile for me today because it's a happy day ;)

You always find "nouveautés" in your garden! This tiny one is another interesting creature, which you have, as usual, well photographed. Very well presented with the diagonal composition and the vertical framing. Fine colors too.
Well done and interesting!
Kind regards

Hello Jesus,
Simply outstanding quality. The detail is incredible and the colors are gorgeous and natural looking. Exposure couldn't be any better and F/16 aperture resulted in excellent DOF. A real beauty to view. Great work!!
