Saturday so no heavy scientific notes today. Today we'll be talking about football ;-) Some real bugs wear t-shirts in football clubs' colours - like this one on my picture. When I looked at it I started to wonder which football club has got red and black stripes? I think there are few with similiar colours around the world. So - google is my friend - and after few minutes of intense searching I've got answer :-) You know what? This club is from capitol city ;-) It is called Havnar Bˇltfelag (Tˇrshavn Football Club) and it is placed in capitol of the Faroe Islands :-) The club is quite old - 100 years old and it is called Manchester United of Faroe Islands :-) So supporter on my picture must be very proud!

Hi Greg, good shot, a little noisy but not so bad. Nice POV and colours.

I think this one this one has the Goalkeeper's shirt on. :-)

Very good macro, Greg. I like the contrasted colors and the great sharpness on the fore part, showing clearly it's grainy surface. These GRAPHOSOMA LINEATUM are out here too and are a very good subject for striking macros. They live mainly on ombelliferous plants, sometimes in large number. You just need eleven of start a coach job, but training might be hard ;-).
Well done!

Good morning Greg, very good shot of the strip bug. (Graphosoma lineatum) Great POV and very good details.
Good visual impact. TFS.

Very striking colours Greg. Long Bay College's (7kms away) rugby colours too. Good POV, it looks like he's training on a tightrope. Well done.

Very good macro of this supporter, Greg.
Little noise, but very nice colours, well compose and good details.
Very well done.

Great photo, superior colors, clarity and POV.
Thank you for sharing

Hello Greg!
I'm not fanatic supporter but my colors are same with my brother(Cem-comandante).Your shot has good DOF and well detailed on head.I liked title and composition very much.TFS...:-)

Hi Greg

Interesting bug. The colours are also interesting as tonight the All Blacks (New Zealand) played the first Rugby test against the Lions. Now, I say the colour of the bug is interesting as the All Blacks supporter colour is, well.... all black. Aren't you surprised..... Say: yes! and the supporter colour for the Lions is red... so who does this bug support for the Rugby tonight?

Good POV and OOF BG. Thanks.

BTW... The All Blacks won!!! :-)

Great shot Greg,
Excellent sharp detail, colours and composition. Good DOF and POV.
Well captured, thanks for posting
My local team (Wycombe Wanderers) had a black & red striped kit (Away) for a season. We didn't do very well though!

Grzegorz, I must say that here in Brazil we have Flamengo (www.flamengo.com.br).

One of the greatest football players ever (Zico) was a Flamengo player. Nowadays, Zico is Japan's coach.

Flamengo has the greatest number of supporters in Brazil - there are millions of them.

As for your photo, some noise that the Blur Tool could easily eliminate.

Great pov and contrast.

I love red! It's my favourite colour so I love this red(45) bug :-)

Is this supposed to be a sad Milan AC supporter. Nice details of the head and well composed. A bit noisy though.
Regards Toni
