Welcome to TN Patrick. You do start of with a bang! Excellent shot of this Cicada. The details are tack sharp. Well... without wasting any more time everything here is just perfect. One of the best cicada shots I've seen. And a nice supportive note. Well done, with such a standard I can't wait to see more. Just watch out for that F4.8, I try my macros from F8 on. Brilliant!

Welcome to TN!
Very good first post, I hope it had a bit more light, but details can be perfectly seen anyway. You chose just the right angle to get all the cicada into DOF with only F:4.8.
Hope to see more photos and critiques soon.

Beau cliché qui met bien en valeur cet insecte symbolique du sud. Je note que vous avez un 5060WZ, excellent appareil en macro et paysage. Compliments Patrick.
