Hi Nicolas.
You close-up is simply outstanding. First-class job. Diagonal structure of the composition, great DOF and perfect sharpness and details of the trunk and insect are really fantastic also as well as nice rich colours and very impressive a bit blurred BG. Bravo and my best regards.

Helo Nicolas!
Vey nice and shapr picture with good detaisl and composition. The species is not very colourful but still very beauty for me :)
On the other hand please note, that according to the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature the name of species (here aegyptium) should be written in small letter :)
Best regards,

Magnifique, tous les détails y sont et les couleurs ne sont pas exagérées.
