Ich bin ein Berliner.
Long time, no "see" ?
Another classic PS POV ;-) Super sharpness and lighting from the very low angle, and fine details in the little soldier beetle.
I hope all is well with you.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Good title, but not only! Impressive bright colors, great sharpness and a very beautiful composition.
Nice job, Philippe.
Hearty welcome back, Peter!
Hope you have been well all this time.
This Soldier Beetle captured in your unique and signature manner looks glorious against the sky.
Hope the other stalwarts like you follow suit and return here to make this place as great as it once was.
First I must say your Sony Cybershot DSC HX1 takes incredible images. Your gallery is simply awesome and filled with top quality photos. This particular image is certainly no exception as it displays super fine detail and beautiful natural colors. A real beauty!!!

Super close up of this Red Legged Soldier Beetle. Great control of light to provide wonderful colour and detail. I like your POV, it provided a super BG and showed the Beetle very well.
Thanks for sharing

Ist eine grosse Freude wieder ein Posting von Dir zu sehen...dachte ich doch gerade gestern, dass Du wahrscheinlich keine Zeit findest. Dieser Berliner "Soldat" hat eine verblühte Blume, wahrscheinlich eine Pulsatilla ausgewählt um das schöne Wetter von guter Höhe aus zu geniessen. Eib Bild voller Licht, ganz in Deinem persönlichen Stil ausgeführt. War noch nie im Berliner BOGA, muss ich mal nachholen.
Herzlichen Dank auch für Deinen Besuch in meiner Bildgalerie.
Hoffe natürlich noch mehr zu sehen und nicht noch einmal ein Jahr zu warten.
great to see you back, I enjoy viewing your photos !
Wonderful photo, beautiful lighting, outstanding details, natural colors, lovely composition !
Best regards !

This is amazing with this colorful beetle clinging on that fine flower. Superb angle against the partially silenced sky.
Thanks and kind regards.

excellent capture with exciting color contrast, red on silvery background.
Well presented is splendid sharpness and details.
The sky as its real background is pretty.

Stunning picture of the cute insect and so amazing plants. Details of the both objects are simply terrific. I am impressed with wonderful diagonal composition of the image so much as well as with cloudy blue sky as a BG. Great sample of high-end job. My warm regards and TFS.
