Hello Jose,
Great shot,superb composition, sharpness and great details and colors.TFS

Did you choose this day to shoot only the mating bugs, Jose? Ha,ha,ha! I'm just being a bit flippant, mainly out of sheer pleasure of looking at this yet another powerful macro image.
Needless to say, it goes directly to my favourites :-).

salut Jose,
belle image, j'en ai réalisé quelques unes ce weekend chez mes parents, la lumière n'est pas facile à gérer. Bon choix de support qui colore bien l'ensemble, belle netteté.

Hola José,
sorprendente nitidez,
los detalles son perfectos,
agradable bg. y fg.
buen trabajo amigo...

Menudo lujazo José Ramón.
Vamos que te van a censurar un día de estos, como estas aprovechando la primavera. ;o)
Preciosa foto, nitidez, color vamos que me gusta toda ella.

To José,
the guy who knows all about lighting in macros. Here you choose harsh front light, just what was needed for dull brown bugs. You added action as well and the dark background is good. Well done,

Hola Jose,
Vaya fondo y vaya oportuno que fuistes.
La luz y la nitidez son excelentes (como siempre).
Saludos cordiales

Ese sigma te va de cine... curiosa especie y diferencia de tamaño entre macho y hembra... Es un placer ver estas fotos con tan buena calidad

Hola Jose Ramón
No cabe duda que es la época de los apareamientos y se ven con cierta frecuencia.
Parece evidente que has usado flash, y la imagen parece que está algo sobreenfocada, aunque podría ser efecto del flash. "Tengo que ir pensando en hacerme con flash de anillo"
Muchos saludos

Hi Jose

Another amazing macro shot from you!
The details here are fantastic and i love seeing both of these two in exceptional focus here.
The sharpness makes all the beautiful textures so well visible, and the good exposure and flash management made all the colors shine!

Bravo and TFS
