Hello Manee,
a pretty good capture of this 'difficult' object for photographers, in particular considering the bright light. Reflections are kept to a minimum while colours and surface structures appear brilliant and sharp, respectively. Optimal point of view and focus.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Manee
What a fantastic capture, colors are beautiful
great sharpness

Hello Manee,

Just marking,

Hello Manee,
a brilliant and sharp picture of this beautiful Jewel Bug.
I like the composition.
Best wishes,

Hi Manee,
this is one of the really brilliant pictures of the already by itself brilliant Jewel bug, Manee!. You mastered the problems with reflections and metallic colours extremely well. The contrasts are good, the shadow not too harsh (a risk with full sunlight). I could imagine that removing some of the reflective spots on the head and thorax in PS could improve the picture, but not by much. After all, these reflections are natural! Well done, congratulations. What an interesting picture to look at. I make it a favorite of mine.
I wish you a Happy New Year,
