A bug nymph, maybe belogs to Nezara viridula species, disturbed by an ant that rounded it. I don't know what the ant want, maybe some sugared secretion? But this kind of bug when adult secrets a very nasty "fragance".
Homemade macro lens
Taken in my garden past summer
I hope you like it.
Greetings to all TNers!!!

Hi Hernan,
Wonderful shot and a nice moment captured. The bug nymph looks beautiful what with all the patterns and colours on it body and the black ant seems to be jealous about it. Probably the ant is 'sledging'. Very neat and sharp image with a good POV. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

WOW Hernan!
Interesting macro. Ant persecutes different insects often. Sharp bed-bug in pieknych colours. Ant on second plan
TFS - Roma

ant isn't in focus but it's still a grat action capture. good focus on the other insect. nice colors good background

Hi Hernan,
Thanks to the rich colours this is very optimistic shot :) I like also the POV and the situation presented on the photo. I really think that you are right, the ant wants something from the bug. On the other hand I think that the bug belongs to family
Anyway, very nice photo!

Hello Hernan,
This is beautiful bug nymph. The marking on the body is so beautiful. Just like and artwork. You captured the moment with sharp and well exposed picture. Very well done.


I like the moment (double presentation) Colors are nicely saturated. Nymph is sharp and nicely presented. Unfortunately the ant is on the move :-)and that is why I am wondering maybe you could post just a croped version - only a portrait of the nymph What do you think?

Best wishes

Buen macro hernan.La nitidez sobre la chinche es perfecta

Hello Hernan,
Beautiful scane.Well caught,framed and composed.I'd never seen the right one before.

Curioso lo que dices de objetivo macro casero... ¿a qué te refieres? La chinche te salió muy bien enfocada y en campo.. a ver si te va a contratar Nikon o Leica de ingeniero de macro...

Ciao Hernan, splendido insetto, mai visto prima, che sembra far due chiacchere con la formica, grande composizione e macro meravigliosa, bravo, ciao Silvio

Seu jardim apresenta uma vasta variedade de especies, isto é muito bom, pois destaca um certo cuidado de sua parte na preservação e cuidado o que é muito importante até mesmo no jardim de casa !
Foto muito interessante, realmente fica a pergunta .. o que faziam, será que existia interesses em comum, ou apenas dois amigos numa tarde ??? rs
Uma pena que a formiga ficou desfocada, mas mesmo assim a imagem não perde a sua beleza !!!
Parabéns amigo.

Hello Hernan,
a beautiful ornamental colour pattern of the bug and a nice encounter between bug and ant. Focus and sharpness is clearly on the bug. I think the ant is restless and moving?!
Best wishes, Peter

Precioso el pequeño escarabajo, se asemeja a decoraciones Aztecas ejje lo que lleva dibujado. El enfoque bueno y eso que la lente es casera. Nunca vi aquí ese insecto. Abrazo Hernan. Ah, cambiando de tema y aunque yo no sea "futbolero" tengo al Mesi a 150 Kilómetros de mi casa, en el FC Barcelona; ese hombre es un monstruo del fútbol y la pasada jornada metió de postre un gol con la mano clavado al famoso de Maradona. Ignasi.

Hello Hernán,
A funny encounter!
The moment is well captured, amazing patterns and details in the bug...
I like the fine colour combo, and the situation is well framed!
Pablo -

:-) OK-

Hi Hernan!
And now you are producing macro lenses! That's great!
This is a great shot that captures the details of the bug in a marvelous way.

What a beautifully shaped, delicate looking stink bug, Hernan!
Though the intruder ant is blurred, it adds to the dramatic touch to the picture.
Tera kya hoga kaaliye -- 'Do you know what will happen to you, you black-guard, if you dare touch me?'
I have used a popular line from a very famous Hindi movie to support your aptly worded caption :-).
Well done and TFS.

bonjour hernan
la fourmi est floue mais j'aime beaucoup cet insecte qui me fait penser a un bouclier de glatiateur.
bonne netteté et belles couleurs.

Hola Hernan,
Preciosa imagen, la Nezara debe ser de los chinches mas hermosos y tú le has sabido sacar buen partido, la composición con la hormiga, la nitidez y luz son excelentes, Saludos
José Ramón

Unos detalles fabulosos Hernán, parece que el insecto de la derecha fuera portador de un escudo de armas...
Una escena fantástica en la que la chinche es la protagonista con toda nitidez.
Un cordial saludo y tfs, JL.

Hello Hernan,
This is a very interesting encounter between two different species. It makes the picture appear so vivid and we can try to guess what are the intentions of the two creatures. Very natural shot.
Thank's and best regards

Magnifique, insecte très original.
