Gran detalle sobre este monstruo alado Pawel.
Muy buen encuadre y agudeza con suaves tonos y un DOF un tanto acotado... que F utilizaste en este caso?

Great detail on this winged monster Pawel.
Very good frame and sharpness with smooth tones and a DOF somewhat limited... what F do you used in this case?

It's good shot, the most details are visible. In my opinion a little oversharp.

Very well done photo there Pawel!
The focus is right in the middel of the bug!
You mange to get excellent shots with that camera!
I have the 5700 but I cant get such pictures with it.

Very well done!

Excellent macro Pawel.
A bit too sharp, but the light is great and the eye is fantastic.

Good macro Pawel. Amazing detail and good colours.
Great post. A few notes would also help especially on how you got this shot.

The details are extremely close up. The hairy beast looks huge. I think if you used a smaller aperture setting like F8 instead of F4.7 you would have gotten much more details in the DOF. It's a great shot none the less.

You do take nice photos but the essence of the site is learning about nature and photography. I would really like to see you put some effort into your notes though.

What a furry guy. The sharpness is excellent and so is the detail on the blacks. I would have liked to see a not supporting this great image. Very well done.

Thanks for posting

One strange, good looking ,,gipsy bee,,(as we call it in Romania). Great macro with surprising patches of key focus, hand made or natural ? The most admirable thing is the patch of dew in the eye, that is one amazing feature that convinced me to give you the maximum smilie.
If next time your photo does not come with any info notes you wont receive any points from me.

Very good macro Pawel.
Good sharpness and details specially in the eyes, good composition.
WEll done.

I would really like to see some notes about the picture.

Wonderful close-up, a wee bit too sharp.
Very good details
Well done.

Pawel, this is an amazing macro. Excellent sharpness, colors and blurred bg.

The insect is very beautiful, and you did a great job.
