Hi Christodoulos. Welcome to TN with this very beautiful shot of this very beautiful coloured wasp. The details and composition are excellent. I have seen your excellent Cyprus butterfly book in the library of my teacher Professor Bayram Göçmen who is also a Cypriot scientist. TFS this and your excellent book.

Giasou Christodoulos and welcome to TN file! Nice to see a Cypriot butterfly expert and scientist on TN. I always benefit from your superior Butterfly book! With this opportunity, i would like to express my appreciation. I also feel happy to see a new compatriot member on TN too. Although i was born in Kantou (Limassol) my family members from Paphos (Kidasi and Prastio).
Regarding your 1st posting, I agree that this cuckoo wasp photo has nice details with great contarsting BG. Nice off-center placement too. A cheerful image MF!
I'll look forward your butterfly posts.
TFS and have a nice night and week!

Wonderful first shot here. Welcome to TN family.
You have pictured an amazing insect with fine details. Sharpness. Colour reproduction is exceptional as well as composition of the image. Stem seems as overexposed a quite a little bit but it is not a point at all. Smooth BG is very nice and suitable for the main subject. With best regards,

You really have some stunning images in your gallery, this Cuckoo wasp being one of them. Wow, if this is not perfect photography then I do not know what is. The metallic colours is really gorgeous, the focus on the dot, the composition to my liking in the middle of the frame and everything else just so pretty. This is indeed a spectacular macro. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
