Hello Lou,
An excellent macro of C. hybrida basking in the sun. The high aperture has given fine sharpness and DOF and it shows up well against the sand.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Mooie foto weer. Prachtige natuurlijke kleuren en uitstekende scherpte. Deze achtergrond past heel goed bij de foto.
Ik hoop dat ik dit weekend wat tijd heb om nog wat nieuwe foto's te maken. Ik heb niet veel voorraad meer.
Geniet ze,

Ciao Lou, wonderful bug with fantastic details, excellent sharpness and splendid natural colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Laurens friend,
Fantastic focus! ... can count the grains of sand! (If you have enough patience). It is a very interesting insect, with a color that tends to be iridescent in places. Good POV. Greetings, Jesus

Hi Lou,
close approach capture of excellent sharpness and resolution, perfectly delivered natural colours in a pleasantly soft light, perfectly composed.
The giant madibles are well shown. Consideration that beetle's extreme waryness and volatility a capture of such high quality deserves an extra applause. Great work. Thank you!
With best regards,

Ciao Laurens. Stunning detaisl and perfect DOf here. Amazing red/metallic tones.
