[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my friend.
It was so kind to me, that it has allowed to study it and make carefully numerous pictures. It has waited, when I have run home for the camera. After the first series shots it has allowed to me to run for a tripod. When it is tired from shooting and has turned away from me it has allowed to me to turn it by means of a grass blade how I wanted. As a token of gratitude I represent it to all of you.

I did not identify this widely-distributed bug yet but I think that with help of colleagues on TN I'll do it very soon.

Excellent macro indeed, the care you took(and its patience) paid off. It is the bug Graphosoma lineata (or italica, I understand it's the same species)

Hallo Alexei,
brilliant capture of this Graphosoma. The flash allows to see also the markings and colours of the underside, also.

Hi Alexei,

Superb macro. DOF is absolutely perfect. Nice colours as well...
The POV is very good with the insect slightly on the right.
Good job.

Hello Alexei,
Strong colours and amazing details!
