Cute, stylish and modern! That is how I can describe this image Jose! It is very appropriate for a Art gallery as well! Have a lovely day my friend!

Hola Jose Antonio,
non so aiutarti sull'ID di questo piccolisssimo insetto, bellissimo il contrasto con il giallo in una piacevole e accurata composizione.
Grazie e complimenti
Buen fin de semana

Hi Antonio,

Unfortunately I'm not that familiar with this beetle-like insect. Hope someone can give its exact id and we can learn something thanks to him/her. The main subject is sharp and also its pattern very interesting. You've used the shallow DOF expertly for separation!
TFS and have a nice weekend MF!

Hello Jose Antonio,
Beautiful photo of this tiny insect on the flower leaf. Very nice contrasting colours, good sharpness and a plaesing composition.

Hola José Antonio, creo que se trata de Anthrenus trifasciatus (Attagenus trifasciatus).
En Lleida es común y creo que lo publiqué una vez; no recuerdo.
Bonito y hábil detalle dado su minúsculo tamaño.
Saludos: Josep Ignasi.

Ciao J.A. Intrigant small one into the jeallow's sea.

Bravo, Jose Antonio!
