Hello Jose Ramon,
What a splendid macro, it is superb and so well photographed! How close this is and we can see all the details and the hair on the plants and those scales on the insects. Superb and technically perfect,
Best regards Siggi

Hello Jose,
it is very beautiful capture of these beetles! I like it!

Best regards, Leonid

Hallo Jose
What a delightful and striking image. The details are just stunning and so clearly visible. This is indeed a WOW photo. Twon insects that cannot be missed and which you presented in a very special manner. The more I look at it, the more glamourous it becomes. Fantastic portrayal with excellent detail, perfect colours and depth of field. Excellent framing and superb focus. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards

Jose, this is a truly stunning picture of two Weevils, apparently mating in the crook of a wide leaf. You took the picture in the summer of last year and have now taken it out, mercifully, to share with us.
This is a huge macro but with perfect sharpness, colours and details. I like the brown of the insects contrasting with the green of the leaves.
TFS and regards.

Hola Jose,
I think you have the identification right.
Your photograph is very good too.
Excellent detail and sharpness with good colour and composition.
A great hot.
Very well done.
Cheers & TFS

Hi José

Hi Jose,
Excellent macro work.It's very close and well detailed.Sharpness,POV and clarity are wonderful.
Thanks for posting.

Sorry, I won't be able to help with an ID Jose, but this lovely (and maybe a little funny) couple looks so captivating from this lateral viewpoint, the exposure is perfect and the image razor sharp! TFS this fine scene.

Hello Jose,
Yet another mating pair..this time the weevils,...the sharpness and clarity your image exudes is amazing.I love the way you managed an excellent DoF thus presenting the pair in complete focus.The details are fantastic.
The almost parallel PoV works very well.The green of the leaf makes a nice contrast to their brown and their bodies look like trimmed velvet.A very enjoyable presentation.

TFS and cheers

Bonjour Jose,
Etonnante netteté des deux Curculionidae abrités par une feuille bien douce...amusant de voir l'expression de ces deux amants!
Parfaite maitrise de la lumière et de la composition.
Bonne fin de semaine

Hello Jose,

Excellent close-up of these two guys having fun in a leaf!
Well done on the macro job, sharp fine details and great colour reproduction in the subjects...
A balanced composition where the tight framing works well to focus attention!

Hi Jose!

I like the subject very much, and the sharpness reveals rich details. The colours are superb, too. But I regret that a large part of the insects is invisible. I also miss more detailed notes.

Kind regards

Hi Jose.
It is a dream of every macro photographer. Details of the image is unbelievable as well as rich wonderful colours. I also like pictured scene. Both insects are looked in the leaf so attractively. It looks like true bride-bed. Bravo. Perfect macro work.

Hello Jose,

This is an excelent macro with these two insects. You have chosen an excelent DOF so that the whole body of the insects is in focus. Due to the excelent sharpness of the image excelent details can be seen. Colors are well saturated and there is a fine contrast between the colors of the insects and those of the leaf benetah.

Thank you for sharing,

Ola Jose !
Magnífica captura.
Hecho y que desempeña excelente.
Una bella noche,

Hola José Ramón,

primero gracias por tus piropos pero cada uno sabemos donde estamos jeje, eso sí, intentando mejorar. Hace dias que no visitaba tu galería y como siempre veo delicias, tanto en técnica como en arte y es que -no soy pelotas- eres de lo mejorcito, al menos a mí sabes que siempre me ha gustado tu técnica y estilo.
La especie difícil jeje. En este género ni de lado ni cenitalmente !
Tb parece pulverulentus como tú dices; también tiene parecidos con L. sanguineus.

Un abrazo y buen fin de semana: Josep Ignasi
