[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hemiptera is an order of insects most often known as the true bugs (cf. bug), comprising around 50,00080,000 species of cicadas, aphids, planthoppers, leafhoppers, shield bugs, and others. They range in size from 1 millimetre (0.04 in) to around 15 centimetres (6 in), and share a common arrangement of sucking mouthparts.[3] Sometimes the name true bugs is applied more narrowly still to insects of the suborder Heteroptera only.

Ya Foozi,
Assalamu alia kum wa rahmath ULLAH hay wa bara ka tu hu,
Just I say SUBHAAN ALLAH, it is amazing superb excellent and the words ends here but it is some thing unique you shot, not in my fate is this natural beauty and here I wonder mile for just a flower, on the hard cliffs of mountains, well done and TFS.

Hello Foozi

Great macro of this insect over the fruit,
fine POV and the way diagonally is framed,
excellent light and contrast, great focus
sharpness and details, TFS


Hi Foozi,

The flower is helping to frame the insect. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Hemiptera and of the flower. The surrounding light and the light of the flash have a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
