I don´t know the name of this species, looks like to be a beetle to me. It has a long pair of antennae, that seems a dim deer.
The insect is small, about 5 mm body length.
Taken in my garden with homemade macro; it causes a bit blurred image.

e' una immagine veramente perfetta,con l'insetto molto piccolo e il bianco del fiore di sfondo e' molto molto difficile fare una foto cosi' nitida e precisa,mille complimenti,Luciano

Hola Hernán,
Excelente y muy clara captura de este insecto.
Lo que tu llamas "bit blurred image" se traduce en una muy artística imagen, al menos a mi me encanta como luce el fondo difuso.
Muy bueno el punto de vista y la composición.
Felicitaciones y gracias por la foto.

Hi Hernan.
What a great shot, my friend, by subject, composition, wonderful flower and tremendous beetle. Last one with its antennas is amazing. I am impressed with crisp sharpness and refined reproduction of all flower details and excellent DOF and sharpness of the insect. Its position is very cute. BG is super too. My congratulations. Well done.

Ciao Hernan,
complimenti per questa bella immagine.
Mi piacciono soprattutto le lunghe antenne pettinate, che tu sei riuscito a mettere perfettamente a fuoco.
Credo si tratti di un Coleottero della Famiglia Elateridae.

Nice capture, I havn't seen this type of beatle before either. First thing I thought was the antennae looked like deer antlers as well. :) Very good with the composition and Exposure is very good as well with the dark insect on the white flower. I also like your Bokeh.

Hi Hernan,
Nice picture. Great composition. TFS.
