[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had posted 2 pictures of this very jewel bugs some time before. While going through old pictures I found this one and decided to post. As I had posted a close up earlier I decided to post this picture with a different composition. Insects are the best objects to try differen compositions. Lots of people will agree with me. And this one gave me lots of opportunities to capture from all angles. I have almost 10 pics of this bug and all came very nice.Hope you will like this one.

Hi Mahesh,
Excellent work. The composition is really good and the details sharp. Nice POV and perfect BG.
Great job!

Hello Mahesh,
I must congratulate you on two counts after looking at your picture today:

#1. Technically perfect macro of an attractive bug
#2. A note without a single error in punctuation. (Ha, ha, ha! I'm an English teacher and can't help being one on TN too!!)

The image is too good to be just shrugged away with a cliched "Well done" comment.
The branch and the bug combine here into a composition almost lyrical in its intrinsic aesthetic qualities.

Having said all that, why don't you make up your mind whether Sangli is in Maharashtra or Madhya Pradesh :-)?
BTW, I teach Geography too!

Hello Mahesh
Excellent shot of this Jewel Bug,
I'm happy to meet the Guy :_)
Perfect compo and lighting,
Fantastic colors and details,

Namaste Mahesh,
I like this shot, a beautiful metallic beetle, it's a pleasure to look at, thanks

Beautiful Mahesh, just beautiful.
The colours here are very rich and vivid. The detail on your bug is wonderful and sharp. Lighting is great. Just a cute little Jewel bug.

Mahesh Bhai
I would love to see the eye of this bug. But having said that the top portion with excellent marks on the back actually make me feel I am wrong.. Tks for sharing.
