Hi Enio,

This flea beetle is Megistops sp. (Alticini, Dibolina), most probably M. vandepolli Duvivier, 1889, with both adults and immatures recently recorded on Buddleja in the State of Santa Catarina (Linzmeier et al., 2007: Zootaxa, 1615:55-68).

Hello Andre, it took quite a while to find an ID for this amazing moth and some more time to find this picture again @TN yet it's better late than never I believe. The name is Mittonia hampsoni (Distant, 1897) (Pyralidae, Pyralinae). It was initially described in the genus Macna (Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist. 20: 17) but later assigned to his new genus Mittonia by Whalley (1964, Journal of the East Africa Natural History Society 24 (5 (109)): 47-52)

Very natural with respect to colours. That's what I like!

Dear Ram,
a very nice and sharp picture of this small Lycaenidae.
I like to see the details of the wing colour pattern and
also the fine details of the antennae.

I think that this is a beetle of the family Buprestidae,
probably from the genus Julodis.

Hello Ram,
a nice capture achieved by you but obviously not for the fly.
It's incredibly sharp with great depth of field. Fly and spider as well
as the parts of the flower are presented with superb sharpness.

a particular view of this M. didyma specimen which I think is a female.
Focus is well placed on the head and also the antennae are very sharp.

Namaste Ram,
I see that you are still very active on TrekNature and provide us
with nice pictures of beautiful butterflies such as this Junonia
atlites with its prominent orange spots. I know this species from
Sulawesi where I found it at waysides but not within the forest.

Namaste Ram,
I did not know that E. balteatus occurs also in India as it is very common in my
garden here in Germany. Point of view is very special and nice. Focus and sharpness gradient are well select.
Together with the colours this results in a well-composed picture.

Ciao Luciano,
despite f/5.0 all structures of the nicely coloured butterfly are very sharp
as the focus and viewing angle are optimally selected.
Background is sufficiently blurred.
