Ciao Silvio,
you show this small jewel beetle with high brilliance and pretty good sharpness.
The species is Anthaxia hungarica (family: Buprestidae).
Nice composition with the yellow flower and the colourful and iridescent beetle.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Silvio,

Excellent picture of this beetle. Very good POV, DOF and sharpness. The iridescent colours are very well-reproduced.

Bravo Silvio,bellissima anche questa,ottima resa cromatica,sembra una delle foto piu' semplici da fare ma molto spesso succede che la macchina mette a fuoco i petali del fiore e l'insetto rimane sfocato.Buona Domenica (per me di lavoro),Luciano

Hello Silvio,
Amazing photo with wonderful contrasting clear colours and excellent sharpness and BG. Everything in this photo is so good. Perfect composition. Very, very beautiful.

Vaya Silvio, precisamente yo la cacé hace pocos días también jajaja. Buen contraste, aunque algo saturados los colores.

Meraviglioso vestito dagli straordinari colori. Spolverato d'oro.

What a colourful macro you have produced with a wonderful and colourful subject as this...i cant believe such colourful little creatures exist...and it looks as it fell into a keg of golden dust and coated itself with it...a really amazing macro presented in a wonderful natural environment ...and with superb sharpness, colours and contrasts.
Well done.
TFS & Cheers
