Gee, he looks as hairy as me (lol, my last name is Chafer).
Good sharpness, details and DOF. Good colours and exposure.

Pretty hairy for such a small creature, Marie Christine.
And that shows how finely you've captured the details!

Precioso documento Marie, además bien encuadrado el bello conjunto. Me encantan esos tonos de color. Interesante el detalle de la hormiga.

Compliment on this fine image of macro, well done!
the exposure and focus is first class with sharpness, natural colour and superb details especially on the little ann, very fine sharpness too
a very pleasing image with great notes
What a nice photo you did. The image quality is excelent. First of all it is amaising the very deep DOF having in focus the whole body of the insect and part of the leave. I like very much the warm color tones of the photo as well as the feeling everithing is absolutely natural.
Interesting to know what was doing the ant there!

A great macro of P. horticola, that is a garden pest here!
The sharpness and composition on a thistle leaf are great, especially with the ant captured in the spider thread. The falsh ahs been skillfully used to give just the right lighting and colours.
TFS this fine image,

Outstanding amcro shot of this Garden Chafer with lovely colours and sharpness. The bright sunlight gives it a perfect punch amd makes the image glow. The ant hanging there from a speder net gives a fine perspective too. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.
