Hola Sergio,
Muy bonito macro, los detalles, colores y contrastes son excelentes. Muy bien la iluminación.
Un abrazo

Amazing! If I would not see this picture, I would not believe that something like this would exist on this earth.

Beautiful colours, crispy sharp and a nice background blur.
A beautiful picture of an extraordinary insect!

Greetings, Dennis

Bonjour Sergio
Excellente Macro de cet Alien ou de cette curiosité de la nature. Bravo pour la cadrage, les couleurs et l'exclusivité. Manque juste le nom (mais ça ne doit pas être une mince affaire)
Amicalement Robi

a superb macro shot, the detail is outstanding, you can see every hair.
i like the rich golden colouring you have caught and the way you have maintaind the exposure on the black body parts.
contrasts really well with the green background.
all the best

Hello Sergio!
I have to say that this macro is great beacuse of the following reasons:
- the object - amazing creature with fantascic structures on its head :) By the way, this is a member of genus Bocydium, most probably B.globulare
- picture is really great: very good DOF and POV, I also like the contrast with BG.
On the other hand it would be nice to know the size of this species :)
TFS and best regards,

Olá Sergio
não sei como esse inseto consegue equilibrar tudo isso na cabeça, parece até aquela famosa cantora brasileira (que era portuguesa afinal) que usava todo esse aparato...
vc tem idéia para que serve esse pendúculo afinal ?
Como sempre, suas fotos são irrepreenciveis..
DOF, POV, foco cores e fundos...
mais uma perfeita e quem sabe um dia eu apreenda...

Hi Sergio
This insect is amazing... I'm not so fond of bugs but this guy is just so unique looking. Beautifully captured with amazing detail and colours. I'm glad someone identified this guy.
