Coleopteron? Beetle? Hemiptera? I didn't get to classify this insect! He called me the attention for the fact of the color.
A very alive red.
Very small, he should have 15 millimeters.
I like the macro. But his/her opinion will be more important!
Thank you for the visit. Thank you for the critic.

Cores muito boa de uma excelente macro e ainda um composição também boa.

José Reynaldo, bela captura. O inseto é muito bonito e colorido, e sua foto nos mostra isso muito bem.

Também gosto do ângulo e da composição.

Fiz um pequeno workshop.

Great shot, Jose. Brilliant colors and good composition. Well done. TFS. : )

Very nice capture. The color is indeed striking. It is a true bug, hemiptera, probably a nymph or less likely a wingless form or species.

This insect reminds me of those ones, who use to eat up my lilies! Maybe a cousin?
Good picture! Clear and sharp!

Jose, great macro and a good sharpness. Nice work. Thanks sharing,

Very vibrant colour.
Good macro and composition.

Very nice macro shot of this beautiful creature. I cannot be at any help about the specific ID but I am sure it belongs to the bugs and the order Heteroptera. It is a nymph which you can see by the non developed black wings. When it transform to an adult bug they will look like a solid shield.

The colours are great as well as the tight composition but the picture is a little noisy which might be caused by either oversharpening or too hard cropping (always remember to remove noise before sharpening - I have a link with some clever words about this on my intro-side). Livio did a great WS.

Very great details for such a small subject, and an often moving subject. I find insects and birds so very difficult to photograph. I love the colors of this bug and leaf.

Olà José
J'apprécie le rouge qui contraste avec l'arrière-plan. Le cadrage est parfait.

Olà José

Olá Nofer!
Suas fotos são sempre muito bonitas e espertaculares. É muito dificil escolher alguma sem ser injusto com as outras. Suas bosboletas estão fantasticas! Gostei deste em especial por conta das cores que vc conseguiu captar e a nitidez geral. Parabens!

Hi Jose !

This is a beautifull close-up. Focus is very sharp and exposure is excellent. The color contrast is beautifull and I love the diagonal position of the insect in a square format.
Excellent picture and TFS.

Thanks also for the workshop, I appreciate.

Hola jose,
muy colorido insecto, me gusta el acercamiento que ha hecho. Pero... tiene mucho ruido de fondo. Hice un pequeño retoque en workshop.

As cores são diferentes e ficaram muito boas, nitidez, contraste e composição, uma foto que chama a atenção, não saberia identificar o inseto.

As cores falam por si! Bonitos detalhes, composição, luz, nota...
Tem uma boa semana fica bem!
Thanks Ana:)

Ola Jose Reynaldo.
Bom macro da epoca.Inseto interessante.
