La Canon empieza a dar sus frutos... una excelente macro Hernan.
Adecuada iluminación a pesar del intenso sol, no se perciben grandes reflejos, comunes al retratar a estos bichos.
Muy buen encuadre con el DOF ajustado pero efectivo (con un fondo así y tanta luz, podés perfectamente probar F5.6 o incluso más sin problemas) y el foco bien ubicado.
No sé si es la mejor de este insecto que presentaste, pero es realmente muy buena.
Un gran saludo... Ricardo

Hola Hernán,
Una captura muy nítida y con una ajustadísima profundidad de campo. Los colors, el fondo y la composición están en su punto y el bichito es precioso.
Un saludo, José M.

Hello Hernan,
Great nicely composed macro.
So small the animal is, so impressive it looks on your picture. Fine details and sharpness is on the right places.
Very nice natural colours and a good background. Compliments Hernan, very good work!
Regards, Ruud

Hello Hernan,
I like this POV and DOF as well and this nice composition. I remember have seen a similar specie here, colors were different but the shape was the same. I'm glad to know what specie it is as I might search the ID of our local ones :-) Thanks,
Claudine

Hernàn:
¡Còmo te envidiop! Yo no he podido lograr una foto aceptable de estos bichitos. Esta està magnìfica. Los colores de la vaquita brillan como si tuviera una capa de barniz. Muy buena la profundidad de la imàgen, el encuadre y la luz, que està perfecta.
Congratulations!
Un baccio.

Hola Hernan,
Excelente y bella captura, la composición en diagonal muy buena con un fondo muy lindo, la luz suave refleja unos colores muy bonitos y naturales, el enfoque es muy bueno pero un pelín justo para mi gusto. Saludos cordiles

Hello Hernan,
this fragile, tiny little beetle is presented here in a very skilful way - perfectly chosen parts in focus, and the flloff in sharpness on the leaf makes the scene look strikingly three dimensional.
Colours are just beautiful in their subtle softness.
Charming presentation.
Thank you, and best regards,
Peter

Hi Hernan

W very beautiful capture of this beetle you have here.
The composition is very simple yet very effective, with the diagonal positioning of the plant your subject is one.
The sharpness of the details is excptional, the lighting very good and the colors charming.
Also the POV is excellent and the DOF impecable, isolating the subject very wll from the BG.
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Hernan,
Magnifique petit coléoptère avec des couleurs vives qui fait, semble-t-il, beaucoup de dégâts.
Belle construction de l'image avec un arrière-plan de grande finesse.

Hello Hernan,

Excellent picture of this little but so colorful insect ! Great composition and good idea to wait until it came to the end of the twig (is it the good english word?). Very nice blurred bg complimenting perfectlty the insect... I'm just wandering if using f/8 or higher instead of f/4 you would have caught the 2 antennas in focus... Great picture, my friend and TFS!!!

Michel

Hola Hernán, que hermosa foto, perfecto el fondo, la compo,la luz...me encanta!!!!
Felicitaciones
Silvia

Hola Hernan,
Magnífico este macro del insecto.
Los detalles obtendos son excelentes, muy bien el punto de vista empleado.
La armonía de colores es genial, el marrón claro del fondo crea un entorno ideal para apreciar la escena.
Lo que mas me gusta es la cuidadosa composición, muy bien lograda.
Felicitaciones y felices fiestas!
JM

Muy buena foto amigo Hernan.
Gran composicion, bonitos detalles y colores y una calidad muy buena... veo que tienes un juguete nuevo, espero que lo disfrutes.
Cris y yo te deseamos unas felices fiestas y próspero año nuevo. Un abrazo, Felipe.

Hi, Hernan.

Hello Hernan,
Photographing insects in insect-richest country, that's something :-)
The species you presented is very interesting, we also have some Diabrotica in Poland much less colourfull.
I like your composition with the leaf-tip diagonally crossing the picture and with blurred BG.
TFS and best greetings,

Amigo Hernán, yo creo que este beetle veste las cores de mi país! Buena captura! Ótimos detalhes mui nítidos!

Hello Hernan!
I like this picture because of the following reasons:
1.it is really good (DOF, POV, contrast, ect.)
2.it present really small species what is not easy to do :)
Best regards and have a nice weekend,
Radomir

hola Hernán, yo tenía la canon g3 y hacía cosas majas pero tú con poco eres sobresaliente como se ve en esta foto.Con la canon 400d ya ves, los intento pero poco a poco jeje. Por tu presentación te veo un tipo interesante y sencillo. Deseo que todo te salga como esperas y visites rincones lejanos. Yo a final de año quizás vaya para Chile en viaje profesional pero aprovecharé para desengrasar la canon jajajaja. Un abrazo y deléitanos mas a base de fotos.
Saludos: J. Ignasi (J. Inacio pero en Catalán)

wow,
Esta macro está fantástica as cores estão fabulosas! Tudo para mim está muito bom!
Fica bem Ana!

I love this!!! Excellent colours & detail.

Hola Hernan.

Interesante insecto por sus colores asi como su nombre.

Saludos.
Jose LUis.

This is a great sharp image of the voracious little fellow. He is so pretty. I love your simple composition with the OOF background.

Nice work

Prezado Hernan Tolosa, meu nome é Érico Fumero.
Fiquei impressionado com a qualidades das suas fotos. São impressionantes. Assim como você eu também tenho uma Canon Powershot A530 gostaria de saber como você fez a adaptação para tirar as fotos? Um abraço... mais uma vez parabéns pelas fotos.
Grato desde já, pela ajuda.

Hello Hernan,
très belle composition magnifique couleurs et netteté
excellent
Jean-Michel

Hello Hernan,

A very good and artistic picture! The composition is outstanding! I like the way you used the plant as a guideline to lead the eyes to the subject. Also, the placement of the bug is very good. Right in the place of maximum interest. The colors are bright and the bug makes a great subject. The details are outstanding and are nicely emphasized on the blurred background. Outstanding work of art! Thanks!

With Friendly Regards,
Eddie

Olá Hernan,

hi Hernan
great close-up picof this lovely chrysomelid, nice sharpness and color
great composition
Dejan

Since I am a beginner, won't say much except for ... Simply beautiful.

Hallo Hernan
Amazing and superb shot of this colourful beetle. Thank you for this lovely and detailed close-up. Great sharpness on the body and head. To me it actually looks like a jelly baby. Soft and elastic like. The combination of the green, yellow and brown is a perfect match and is really vibrant and stunning. An excellent presentation. I don't think one can ever get bored on this site. You have posted this image more than a year ago, and I discovered it today. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
Anna

Espectacular Hernán, fondo, luz y color todo de diez!
