Hi Hernan

A very beautiful macro work here by you!
The metallic reflections on this cute insect are excellent and very well captured, the details are great, clear and sharp and the colors are wonderful.
I also like the DOF and the POV very much, as well as the composition!

Bravo and TFS

Excelente macro Hernan, por la dificultad de retratar estas especies que producen tantos reflejos y falsos focos.
Me gusta la combinación del punto de vista captado con el encuadre que elegiste para su presentación, sobre un fondo limpio, difuso y contrastante.
Lo ajustado del DOF permite un desenfoque incluso sobre la misma hoja que lo soporta con tonos suaves y bien naturales.
No estás incluyendo el valor de velocidad... estás usando la cámara en prioridad de apertura, elegiendo el valor del F?.
Muy bien hecho.
Feliz 2007 y a sacar cientos de fotos!.
Ricardo

Hi Hernan.
Is this your new camera? If it is, I congratulate you and wish you many lovely prefect done shots.

Extremely well done picture with great details, perfect colours, excellent composition and amazing BG. DOF is selected precisely. POV is very impressive too. My compliments. Extraordinary job. TFS.

Bonjour Hernan
Belle présentation et belle prise en macro avec ce joli insecte, comme toutes tes autres que tu nous as envoyés,les couleurs et la nettetée sont trčs bonnes, belle composition et trčs joli BG.
Au revoir et félicitation ....JP

Interesante ejemplar del que he visto otros en ese mismo color pero completamente liso lo que es el "lomo". Muy buena definición y estupendos detalles Hernán.
Muchos saludos, JL.

Hi Hernan!
We see this shiny insect quite often in a plateau here too. It usually pops up in summers after the rain, as far as I am aware. I tried to capture it a few times but I did not like the result. Your shot is just perfect in showing us the shiny texture and the placement of the insect over the thorny leaf is just excellent. Great shot my dear friend.

Hallo Hernan
Great macro of this colourful small beetle, very nicely composed shot with excellent sharpness and a great pose. The colour is really good with the metallic copper-brown showing perfectly on the green leaf. The detail and environment are just right. Sharp and shiny, and a pleasure to look at. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
Anna
