Hi Hernan,
Outstanding macro shot with awesome details and colours. Great lighting and I like the way it poses on the tip of the flower. The BG looks majestic. Great DOF and POV. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Olá Hernan,
excelente macro! Sua técnica é invejável. Você poderia explicar qual arranjo de câmera e lentes tem usado para conseguir macros tão bonitas?
Obrigado e parabéns!

Dias ya sin visitarte Hernán. Pues vaya pedazo de fotografía que presentas. Realmente se ve raro pero tiene gran belleza y la captaste bien.Increíble el partido que sacas a tu cámara.

Hola Hernan,
this is a very fine and attractive picture.
Both, the general look and the details of the beetle as well as of the flower are well shown.
This is due to exact focus, great sharpness and the smooth contrasting background.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Hernan,

Very nice presentation of this coleoptera. Good POV. Good sharpness. Nice light and colours.

Ciao Hernan,
questa foto è davvero molto bella ed interessante.
Mi piace molto la messa a fuoco sull'insetto e lo sfondo omogeneo.
Davvero una graziosa ed elegante specie che non conoscevo.

Hi Hernan

A very beautiful macro from you, my friend!
I see you don't have any problems with cold weather there :)) You have plenty of subjects ;)
Even though you had to deal with some harsh light here from what i can tell, you still managed to get some beautiful colors and great details from your subject.
The pose you got - here on top of this lovely flower - is also terrific and it gives you an excellent composition.
Nicely done!

Bravo and TFS

Ciao Hernan,stupenda messa a fuoco e colori eccellenti,non facile da fare cosi' bene,complimenti,Luciano

What a marvellous macro and what a well-balanced composition, Hernan! I love it.
The insect is beautifully captured atop a shapely flower bud. The BG is really an asset in this image.
TFS and regards.

Hi Hernan.
Excellent macro shot with amazing scene. I like brilliant reproduction of all features of the insect and so nice reflection of the flower beauty. BG is perfect and very nice for main subject. My compliments. Perfect job.

Hi Herman,
A very nice capture with amazing colors and detail against an OOG BG.
