[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this beautiful bug sitting lazily on a tree trunk and thought of capturing its metallic green shimmer and fluorescent pink edges of the abdomen. But as soon as it noticed my presence, it started shying away, running at a speed too fast to be able to focus on it with a compact camera. Nonetheless, it was one of my most beautiful models.

You have done a brilliant macro with your compact camera, Richa.
It is a large image with good focus and rich colours.
The bokeh BG is apt but with a little noise that can be removed at PP stage, using NeatImage or any such software.
All the best and keep shooting!
