Hello friends in TE.

Of all the plants that I have around my house, my two water rose apple trees (Syzygium aqueum) are favorites with pests. I’m not too keen with pesticides and more than often, they have undergone heavy attack by pests and the leaves will turn yellowish out of the sudden. On two occasions, I have to prune the trees heavily just to give the trees some new life.

Here is a shot of the eaten leaf and I like the artistic skills of these small bugs in creating an artwork on their food.

Thanks for viewing!

Hi Jusni,
You don't only have outstanding photographic skills, but great humour also. :) Simple, yet excellently composed and photographed image, reminds me - don't know why though - to the floor of the kitchen. A minimalistic masterpiece without doubt MF. Bravo. Unbelievable textures.
Friendly regards, László

Hello Jusni,
Now at first I thought it was a picture from our friend Foozi, but I think you have nothing against this idea, Foozi being your friend! But you have seen the interesting subject, you are right, these patterns look quite artistic (even if your tree suffers)!
Good idea and well presented shot!
Kind regards

Hello Jusni,
Yes, that's Nature art! Very well done with sharp details and great contrasts. Cheers,

Hola Jusni

Una imagen sumamente original, y efectivamente estos insectos hacen obras de arte que nosotros podemos observar gracias a la fotografía. Una imagen realmente bella y un buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio
