Dear Horia!

The effect of your superb close-up on the viewer is terrific! It seems to me as if the insect would leave the picture and crawl to me...The great sharpness, the superb lighting and the natural environment make this picture an outstanding one.

Kind regards


Gran control de la luz y unos negros muy bien captados. La disposición y pose del insecto en su ambiente es simplemente fantástica y real. Precioso también el contraste de colores conseguido.
Un abrazo Horia: Josep Ignasi.

Hello Horia,
Nice picture of this weird looking tenebrionid. Not easy to take due to the shape of the beetle and its long legs. Well chosen DOF and great exposure showing all details of the body sculpture.
Best greetings and TFS!
