Hernan, belo título, bela foto. Também gosto da composição e das cores. Belo fundo desfocado. Grande captura.

Hello Hernan,

I think it is a small milkweed bug (lygaeus kalmii, familly: lygaeidae) or another member of this familly.

Hola Hernán,
realmente parece un escudo africano,
un bichito original,
buen foco y color,

Hi Hernan,
I agree that it looks like some type of Milkweed or Sheild Bug. I like your composition and how the insect is at the edge of the leaf. Very good colors amd nice detail here.

Hola Hernan,
Excelente toma de este pequeño chinche, gran nitidez donde nos muestra con detalle sus forma y dibujos, bonita composición en diagonal asomando por el extremo de la hoja, saludos
José Ramón
