J'ai retrouvé ma nana; cela a été l'occasion d'un face à face !
Voici une sauterelle de la famille des phaneropterinae. Le corps est parsemé de tâches rouilles. Le chant est un strident cliquetis métallique.
Il s'agit ici d'une phaneroptera nana

Hello Claude,

Nice way of showing the face of the insect. The DOF you have chosen shows well the details of insect's head. The white of the flower and the light green of insect's face matches well.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Claude,
Wonderful macro image with spot-on focus on its head. Those bulging eyes look awesome and I like the 'eye-contact' too. Very neat and sharp image with perfect flash illumination.

Nana est aussi le nom du Golden Retriever d'une bonne amie. ET cette nana est superbe, quel macro, Claude, toujours aussi impressionnant! Merci,

Hi Claude.
What a cute POV and fine macro shot. I like impressive eye-contact with beautiful cricket, precise exposure (flash work) and excellent reproduction of all (including white) colour tones. Composition of the image is very nice too. Well done and TFS.
