Stenopterus rufus (Linnaeus, 1767)
7-16 mm. - Specie comune; le larve vivono su latifoglie, gli adulti si nutrono sui fiori, specialmente su ombrellifere. Si distingue per l’assenza nel primo articolo delle antenne del solco longitudinale e per la colorazione generale, tendente al rossiccio. Capo e pronoto neri. Elitre rosse o arancioni, tipicamente con la base nera e l’apice scurito. Zampe con i femori anteriori e medi quasi interamente neri, i posteriori interamente rossicci, o inscuriti all'apice, ma non ingrossati.
Gli adulti sono presenti, in tutta l’Italia e nelle isole maggiori, da maggio ad Agosto .

bonjour silvio
l'insecte est assez bien et l'identification bonne mais je trouve dommage d'avoir laissé autant de bruit a gauche de l'image,je me suis permis un WS.

Hi Silvio,
this is a pretty little bug.
Nice presentation.
+++ Sharp with good details. Perfect DOF and a great BG which is flushed with colours. Great POV and a good composition.
--- A bit noisy but in the far-left side but specific noise-reduction could sort that out.
Otherwise a perfect shot :)
Well done,

Foro llamativa en especial por la combinación de potentes y contrastados colores cálidos. Buen enfoque , composición y luz.

Hello Silvio,
generally a good presentation and 'introduction' to that species. Colours are convincing. The focus is just right, but depth of field and sharpness could be slightly better. Background noise in particular on the left side of the picture can be successfully removed as has been shown by Laurent 'marmottelolo'
Best wishes, Peter

vai Silvio..anche se stavolta hai toppato un po' la messa fuoco...complimenti Luciano

Very good shot of this tiny cerambycid. The shot has very good DOF (especially taking into account size of the object) and is perfectly exposed. Interesting object, good note. All just fine.
Best greetings & TFS!

Excellent capture of this Longhorn beetle in a fine composition. Great sharpness and fine colours. Nice colour of the background too but it is a bit noisy.

Hello Silvio,
Fine close macro of this small longhorn beetle. Excellent technical quality and I like the POV, composition on the daisy and the OOF BG.
Well done and thanks,

QUelle belle macro avec tant de détails et les couleurs ont très belles,la compositon est fantastique.

Hello Silvio!
Really I am a little confused because here I can see the species - very colourful and rather not very small, which is not known for me! :) So at first - thank you for showing something new and interesting!
According to the technique I have only one question - the noises are ONLY on the left side of photo, how it is possible? :)
TFS and my best regards,

Bonsoir Silvio :)
Curieuse petite bête ! Jamais vu auparavant. Excellente capture, beaux détails, bonne netteté et magnifiques couleurs ! Un pro de la photo 'animalière', bravo mon ami :)
