Hi Scott, what a great macro shot captured with skillfulness and art. Great POV, beautiful colours and the composition adds to it: I like the leaf crossing the whole photo and the green background makes the bug stand out. I wish I could have learned more about that strange bug with a small note. Thanks!

very very great macro,impressive details of insect,especially the eyes,thanks fr share this fantastic work,have a nice day,Luciano

How would you like about 85,000 western boxelders!!! AGGGGGGH! I've never looked at ours this closely. I don't think they are that colorful. They are such a nuisance... harmless I think... but a nuisance. For some reason they like our property more than any one else's.

This is a great macro. We need a note.

enchantée de faire votre connaissance, avec cette magnifique macro, de tres belles couleurs , bons détails, bravo et merci du partage


Hello Scott,
Interesting content...
Well composed.

Hi Scott,
a very good close-up of this Heteroptera (Lygaeidae?)
Well-focused and with sharp details.


Hi Scott!
Beautiful, and very colourful bug species (the colouration is a kind of self-defence I suppose :>). I like also profile point of view. Anyway, some noise reduction would be good idea :)
Friendly yours,

Hello Scott,

I like that shot, you can really see the texture of the little beast, nice composition. Exposure is good too. Nice shot!


nice closeup, TFS Ori
