Hello Leonid,
Another excellent macro: this time of a dew-covered Acorn Weevil, taken from a great POV with fine sharpness and lighting against a pleasinfg neautral BG.
I like the the title from a the Simon and Garfunkle song, though here the troubled water is on the bridge! :-),
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hallo Leonid
This is so beautiful. The whole picture is striking, and a pleasure to look at. The water droplets on the leave with its zig-zag edges is lovely. The title is most appropriate and suits this image well. The water droplets on this weevil body are great and look like soap bubbles. The focus, sharpness, composition and overall presentation are splendid. I cannot let it pass without adding it to my favourites. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

This is a double bill nature picture, Leonid, and it is a masterpiece of its own kind.
The water droplets on leaves is a theme very dear to many of us. Here you have combined it with another theme: Weevils. The droplets on top of the Weevil are just fantastic in this picture.
Thanks for sharing this amazingly beautiful image and best regards.

hello Leonid
wauwh!! a other great picture
you make very good picture
i like your foto's very much
greeting lou

Hello Leonid,
another wonderful macro with a great view of Curculio glandium, excellent sharpness in a nice composition, i like the water droplets and the contrast against a good neutral BG.
TFS. Best regards.

bonjour leonid
extraordinaire macro,lorsque l'on voit un peu pres la taille de l'insecte,obtenir un resultat comme cela est formidable.

Hello Leonid,
This is a great macro shot, with so nice details and amazing droplets. Background is perfect too. Congratulations,

Hello Leoniod,
Nicely done. Good focus and overall technical quality. The wet circumstances are certainly a plus.
Well composed.
Thanks for sharing.

Ciao Leonid, fantastic strange bug and splendid drops, beautiful macro with wonderful light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Leonid !
I wonder how I have missed this beauty - I love to see weevil, with their long noses they are so beautiful ! The details are excellent on this picture, as well as the leaf making a nice curve, the composition, the natural colors, and of course the waterdrops which I always like so much on your photos. Very well done !
