Hi Joey,
Great composition here, and the colours and patterns in the bugs wings really go well with the flower its on.
It looks a bit like a kind of soldier fly, but I can't be sure.

Very interesting - little hairs all over the place. Great capture of details.
Wonderful colors and sharpness yet again. :)

Hello Joe
Very interesting bug,
very nice photo,

Hi Joe,
A beautiful bug. Well captured. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Joey Dude,
Well now I see that your photography wings are growing bigger and quite the improvement when you first joined. This makes for an exciting picture, the colors really excite the senses on this one. and your becoming more skeptical of your DOF results which are improving the quality of your insect shots. Nicely done little dude! :)

You have captured the Bug from a side perspective and the details and colours are so clear it should be easy for a specialist to ID it for you, Joe.
It is an excellent capture with a shallow DOF at 3.5.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Joe,
Another specie of winged beetle I've not seen before..There must be a gazillion of em' ;}
Very nice exposure, color, POV, and detail IMO. Well seen from the OOF BG, Well done. Have a Great weekend young man,
