Hello Jusni

Excellent macro shot with fine POV, i love the
way diagonally is framed on the image, beautiful light,
great focus sharpness and details, excellent contrast
of the color tones, TFS


This too is an exceptionally sharp capture of a nymph, Jusni.
For compositional purposes, you have justifiably kept the little white flower and the entire leaf within the frame.
Well done again!

Hello Jusni,
I could tell from your thumnail image that this was going to be a top quality photo. I wasn't disappointed when I brought it up on my screen, it is a winner in my book!!
Exposure is perfect and colors are vivid yet natural looking. Love the composition and fine detail you managed to capture.
I have never heard of a Cotton Bug, so I learned something from your photo. It reminds me alot of the larva of the Milkweed Bug.

Salam Jusni,

A excellent macro indeed with vivid coloration, sharpness & details. Very nicely done & TFS.

Best regards & salam !


Another impressive macro Jusni! Excellent composition, wonderful colours and great sharpness!

Bom dia Jusni,
Nice photo diagonally composed, pin sharp, very good colors and exposure.

Hello Jusni,
Technically at least as good as the previous and the POV is just right to show that this is a nymph. Nice composition to include the whole leaf that this nymph Red Cotton Bug is resting on.
Great work!
Thanks and best regards,
