[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Invariably, when I want to shoot bugs and similar creatures, I go to Mocambo, a park here in town. Whenever one goes there, there are plenty of pictures to be taken.

Once more, I do apologize for not knowing how to classify the insect. Anyway, feel free to give me this information – since now, I thank you. The bug's size is approximately 1 centimeter.


On Corel PHOTO-PAINT, I cropped and added sharpness.
ISO: 50
Mode: P, supermacro

jolie prise, belle posture et cadrage adéquat!

Looks like one of the numerous colorful stinkbugs present all over the world. Well presented, with nice colors. Your focus lacks a bit of DOF. f/5,6 and 1/125 would have corrected this partly. But ideal would be the smallest (highest figure) aperture and a tripod.

A foto e moi colorista, as texturas e composicion son moi boas, mais estes insectos son moi compricados de enfocar con so F4. A proxima vez proba o modo Prioridade de Apertura en F8. Si a velocidade e inferior a 1/40 confia na tua camara e no teu pulso, toma varas fotos, seguro que algunha estará ben.

Livio, tenemos aquí una chinche muy coloreada. Una criada macro en F/4. Me gusta la composición y el punto de vista así como la profundidad de campo. Tu nota acompañante no me informa mucho sobre tu sujeto sino aprecio a pesar de todo tu gesto de reparto. Gracias

Livio, on a ici une punaise très colorée. Une bonne macro à F/4. J'aime la composition et le point de vue ainsi que la profondeur de champ. Ta note accompagnatrice ne m'informe pas beaucoup sur ton sujet mais j'apprécie quand même ton geste de partage. Merci

Nice composition with great colours, very eye-catching. I agree with Ornis re it looks like a stinkbug.

Very nice shot Livio, great colors, good details.
Well done

Nice one. Good colours and details. DOF could be better but isn't very bad. I like it.

Nice macro Livio.
Great colours and nice composition.
I'm agree with Jean M. but I think 5,6 is not enough , you need the smallest aperture for this kind of image,
and a tripod is very useful.
Well done.

Me alegra verdaderamente ver esta imagen mi amigo brasileiro.
Gran POV, gran agudeza y gran composicion.
Tal vez un F 5.6 hubiera optimizado el DOF, pero de todas formas es una excelente presentacion... sin dudas.

I cheers to me truely to see this image my friend brasileiro.
Great POV, great sharpness and great composition.
Perhaps a F5,6 had optimized the DOF, but in any case it is an excellent presentation... without doubts.

Excellent sharpness and good colours of the insect, even the background and the green line is nice. Alsoe the details very clear,
good shot, Livio, I like it!
