Wonderful close-up shot of this Weevil and such an interesting name it has. Immaculate sharpness and lovely colours and you have captured it in a fine pose. I like this muted lighting which makes this image look even better. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.

What a fantastic macro shot of this pretty litel Weevil!
Excellent detail showing all the little scales.
Great composition and low-down POV.
Superb DOF that has kept the whole insect very sharp while making the BG completely blurred.
Nice light and great colours.
Luciano will love this! :-)

Amazing shot of the cute beetle. Once more subject and POV are fine. Details of the insect and leaf are great and exposure as well as the flash work are superb. Bravo. Perfect job.

This is a beetle i have n'ver come across.And what strange shape, texture and colours. I like the PoV you have used with excellent DoF that is able to give a very clear profile of the beetle.The details of this fine macro show excellent features of this interesting subject.
I do not think you had good natural lighting.But the capture is done with good focus and clarity.Very well done.
TFS & Cheers

A nice and odd weevil, really looks like a banana insect, he, he. Quite small to be the biggest weevil in Central Europe, we have many species largest of this one. My next post would be from a similar species.
