Excellent macro of this Solider beetle. Great sharpness and fine colours. I like the POV and the green background. Composition is very good.
Best regards Siggi

A very fine close macro of a Soldier Beetle. The focusing, DOF and colours are superb with fine use of ambient lighting and very nice contrast against a clean natural BG in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and best regards,

Superb close-up. I welcome wide DOF and excellent details of all insect with attractive long antennas. Details of the bud is also perfect and colours of the shot as well as charming blurriness of the BG are simply awesome. POV and composition of the image are very impressive too. Well done. Thanks a lot and best wishes.
How beautiful is the sight of this sunny and most colourful picture. The natural colours and details captured and displayed is very eye-catching and striking. It is an image filled with warmth and no pretence. This is indeed a beautiful beetle with which you have photographed well, and which is a delight to look at. Your subjects, both the beetle and the flower are well focused and the details are equally highlighted by the blurred background. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Ps. I am also wanting to buy a Raynox DCR-250 lens but I cannot fine one in South Africa.

Very hard to do a vertical shot in such a way. You have managed the colours, angles and interest in a professional style.A pleasing image/1

A fine composition showing this tiny Beetle hunting on top of a bud. Great details, good light and natural colours. The green background makes it stand out very nicely.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Very fine and well composed picture of a Soldier beetle. The pose of the insect is very interesting holding on the little bud. I also like your tight vertical framing.
