Hallo Lou,
Het lijkt een kunstwerkje van een fantasierijke kunstenaar. Wat een bijzonder insect. Genomen vanuit een perfect standpunt in uitstekende scherpte en mooie heldere kleuren.

Hello Lou-Beautiful picture you have captured.This little insect looks like prehistoric.Excellent details and colour.Attractive red eye!Like other two WS pictures too.Thanks for sharing.Regards and have a nice time-Srikumar

Hi Lou, Wow the macro shots are getting better by the day here on TN, and this one is really good, perhaps the sharpness could be a little better around the head area..., but what a splendid image to view, well done,

Best Regards,


Ciao Lou, great macro of fantastic specie, fine details, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Lovely capture of an unusual insect. What an unusual "design"...
