Beautiful creatures; lovely scene; expertly captured.
Love your "Time of Love" series...
Ciao Luciano, complimenti per la tua trecentesima su TN, splendida Luci rosse tra i due metallizzati, già a beccarne uno con quei riflessi è un problema, due poi...
PS mivado a lavar le mani che son tutte sporche di colla, una faticaccia a tener ferma la farfalla e ad appiccicare quella C:)

scatto bellissimo sia per i soggetti in posa molto "insolita", sia per contrasto e nitidezza. Poi quel gioco di luci da quel tocco in più al tutto.

Congratulations on your 300th post! Amazing macro of thesse small Beetles in shiny armour.
Excellent sharpness and beautiful colours and a fine soft background too!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla
you deal with really difficult objects, in particular when taking pictures of them in
bright sunshine. And clearly, there are some points to be criticized: (1) overexposed regions on the elytrae,
(2) low resolution of surface structures, (3) a number of artefacts obviously caused by image processing:
you see them as irregularities in the background or as 'border-effects' at the outlines of the beetles.
I know that you will consider these points as constructive criticism.
Nevertheless, congratulation to your 300th post and thank you for posting so many excellent pictures.
Best wishes, Peter

What anice close-up of these insects. The colors are so shiny that beatels looks like jewels. I like the saturated colors from insects body as well as the contrast with the background.
Thank you for sharing,

Nice job, great moment captured Luciano,
Congrats on 300 posts, it shows you are a committed shutterbug for sure :)
These highly reflective beetles are a pain, but you've managed the reflective glare well..

Bonne photo de ces chrysomèles. Excellente netteté. Superbes couleurs. Il y en a encore plein cette année. Je m'exerce à faire des photos de ces petites bêtes, mais c'est difficile. Je n'ai pas encore réussi à prendre de très bonnes photos.
Félicitations pour le 300th post.
