Hello Horia,
I noticed your photo because we are neighbours tonight and decided to open it. And what a beautiful image! A face vied by a bug and surrounded by a halo of lovely petals. A delight to view. Well done.

Hi Horia,

It's so good to see you again! The flower alone would have been magnificent and the insect is a wonderful bonus. Beautiful colors, super sharp details and a superb composition.

Excelenta prezentare cu detalii si contraste deosebite.
Focusul este perfect si atat planta cat si gandacul arata superb.

Frumoasa captura si compozitie; detaliile si culorile imi plac si ele foarte mult iar claritatea este una de invidiat.
Numai bine,

Bonsoir Horia,

Nice sharp close-up. The flower by itself wouldn't make a great picutre, but the presence of the bug change its attraction. Nice sharp focus, beautifull exposure. DOF gives good details on main subject while keeping BG in a blurry mood. Nice work and TFS.

Hello Horia,
Nice to see that you are back! I like this picture for its original subject and the well chosen square composition. On the thumbnail Tropinata hirta looks like it would have a face! Nice to have on the gone flower a Scarab beetle.
Have a nice day
Kind regards

Bonjour Horia,
C'est bien vu et surtout magnifiquement restitué dans un judicieux cadrage serré.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Horia,
What a splendid image filled with natural beauty and shown in superb detail. An attractive macro containing excellent DOF and just the right exposure. Well done!!

Hello Horia,

This is an amazing subject, or should I say subjects..!
The remains of the flower about to throw the seeds is captured with impressive sharpness in the details, and the little bug is a fine bonus...
A lovely green background..!
