Hello friends in TN,

Although the word 'bug' is commonly used for almost any insect, the Hemiptera are the true bugs.

The order Hemiptera consists of three main suborders; Heteroptera, Sternorrhyncha and Auchenorrhyncha, with around 80,000 species worldwide. They are variable in form, but nearly all have piercing mouthparts, known as the rostrum, for sucking the juices from either plants or animals (depending on the species of bug). The adults usually have two pairs of wings, with the forewings in many cases hardened, although some species have reduced wings or no wings at all.

Thanks for viewing!

Salam Jusni,
lovely style of these masked guys! Excellent capture in superb quality of sharpness and smooth green background. The beauty also lies in the sparkling water droplets that offer a lovely composition.
Very exciting in many aspects deriving this shot into a splendid presentation.

Hello Jusni,
A very fine sharp capture of these two True bugs that look as though they are discretely pairing. The POV and composition on the dew-covered hibiscus flower are excellent and taken with fine sharpness and natural colours in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Jusni.
Refined work, my friend. Subject is wonderful and reproduction of the fine white flower is simply great. Details are stunning as well as WB and colours. Both insects decorate the image perfectly as fantastically illuminated and coloured BG. My compliments and TS.

Good work with high contrasting colours and same with unusual lighting. My secondary camera does a fake HDR and I am relearning something from a different perspective. Now I am looking at shots such as this with new eyes. Very good Sir Jusni!


Hello Jusni,

A very attractive image! The insects are very attractive, and the composition with them on the flower makes for an exceptional image.


Hi Jusni,
Excellent photograph of these true bugs on this wet flower.
Carptured from a nice POV with fine clarity & sharpness.
Its a lovely composition. Well done & TFS.
