[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It has been days since my fascination on this critters. I thought they were fiery ants as in my two previous postings but they are actually juvenile bugs(Heteroptera). Thanks to Cicindela for the very valuable identification.

Hi Czaldy.
They are really bright coloured and the composition you have chosen from under the leaf shows them up perfectly against the lighted green. Well done

Hello Czaldy ,
Very colourful shot of these little bugs.The environments too is very colouful and captured well.It must be quite a difficult thing to get them all without any blur as they all will be in motion.
Very well done.
TFS & cheers

Beautiful shot and quite unuasual.
The green (complementary color of red) enhance so well the beauty of the little bugs.
Difficult catch as I see there was not much light. I might have increase the ISO in order to get both a longer DOF and speed: there is a little blur on the ones the most in the center: the ones that draw the more attention.

Hello Czaldy,
excellent, this picture. Smart use of light, the sun through the plant and the flash from below. The result is a stunning picture that I had missed. Thanks for showing it.
Best regards
