very well done! i like your diagonal composition.
the details on subject are good. nice dof.
sad, but this shot deserve more points ... but i can give you only 2!
Strange that only one person gave it a comment.
But to me it looks special, seldom seen POV for a damselfly;
Just a short comment to this species. This is a beetle belonging to family Chrysomelidae, and subfamily Cassidinae.
Really nice picture!
Best regards, Radomir
Splendide composition, belles couleurs et trés bons détails
Short note though):
a well composed picture with an excellent focus on the hoverfly. In particular, the patterns on the compound eye are nicely visible and shown very sharp. The light including reflections on the wing surface is professionally managed.
Best wishes, Peter
it's a katydid, family Tettigoniidae, subfamily Phaneropterinae
there are several very closely related genera looking like this one, including Phaneroptera and Ducetia
Wonderful face portrait of this crab, John! Poor one i have no idea about lost legs. Great composition with nice flowers and bg also!
