Hi Nilson,
Magnificent macro!
I like a lot the sharpness of the image and the great details got on the insects.
It's very good the composition made along the diagonal.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Nilson,
Great macro of a pair of Tiger beetles (Cicindelidae) in copulo with good sharpness and fronma fine POV against apleasing natural BG.
Well done and thanks,

Hello Nilson!!!
This is the first example of Oxycheila species I have even seen on TN!!!
Most probably it is Oxycheila tristis (Coleoptera: Cicindelidae).
Great picture of amazing beetle! Bravo and TFS!

Ps. If you agree I will add this picture (with great pleasure!) to theme Tiger beetles of the world :)

Hi Nilson,
these Cicindelids are from another world! (But of course, they ARE from another continent :-) . I've never seen such a black and yellow specimen. Great shot! Look at the eyes, nothing escapes the attention of these predacious beetles. And the mandibles! Great shot, Nilson.
Best regards

Ciao Nilson,
non credevo nemmeno che esistessero delle cicindele con questi colori!
Una foto veramente interessante, anche per il particolare momento che sei riuscito a cogliere.
