[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think to deal itself a Carpocoris mediterraneus, but with a total different coloration. The morphology of this bug is similar to the one of Carpocoris mediterraneus, at least is one of the same family. In this photo I tried to prevent much depth of the field a time that I don“t want to evidence the thorns of the plant… I finished for all finding the prompt focus in center of the bug interesting, keeping the remaining portion slightly unfocus.

My best regards,

Hi Joao

This is a lovely capture of a beautiful and remarkably coloured insect.

The composition and overhead POV is great. The green BG is well OOF making the colourful stink-bug stand out very well. The details on the insects back is very sharp, but personally I would have gone for a slightly smaller aperture (f/6+) to ensure the legs and antennae were in focus as well. Anyway, the exposure was well controlled to prevent any OE on the shiny surface of the bug and the BG.

Well done and TFS.
