Hello Nilson !
Wow, what a wonderful insect ! I love both his shape and his colors, and his big hind legs look strange to me. You managed to capture excellent details and nice textures on the carapace, and I also love the vivid colors, the composition, the POV, the blurred BG. Really a great picture. Very well done !

Hi Nilson,

We don't have any insect that looks like this in Arizona! It is beautiful with magnificent colors. An excellent macro with extra sharp details and textures. The symmetrical markings are amazing. I love the pose and the position of the legs. Beautiful background and outstanding composition.


Olá Nilson,
Belíssima foto!
Gostei das cores, luminosidade e nitidez. O fundo desfocado ficou bem legal.

Simplesmente 10 Nilson. Cores, nitidez e background perfeitos. Já ví e inclusive fotografei um "irmão" desse, porém era castanho e com as asas azul marinho. o que mais me chamou atenção em ambos é a "Impressão digital" nas pontas das asas deles. Também não sei o nome, mas quando descobrirmos poderemos trocar informações. Mais uma vez parabéns pela captura.

Hi MF Nilson! Good Morning!

An expertly taken macro capture of a tropical bug from a nice pov with excellent details and composition.
TFS and cheers,

Hallo Nilson
This is a great looking and very colourful insect, with real long antennas. The diversity of colours makes the insect very eye-catching. A great close-up, of this gorgeous insect. The pose is stunning and the insect seems to be full of life. I like the presentation as a whole. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards.

Hi Nilson.
You have pictured an amazing beetle. I have never seen this so colourful species. And your have reproduced its features brilliantly. With great sharpness, exactness of colours and all other attractive details. BG stand out off the insect perfectly and it create a nice 3D-effect. Well done and TFS.

Hola Nilson.

Exttraño con semejantes patas traseras, muy bien captado y me lo tomo como favorito.

Jose Luis.

What a beautiful image, Nilson. The colors are vibrant and the subject is in sharp focus overall, with very nice blurring in the background. The pose of the insect is interesting. Those legs look very powerful for jumping!

Thanks for sharing.
