A bug I spotted while shooting macros of a few flowers. The colours are as recorded by the camera. I liked the sheen, where the bugs coat appear metallic. I have no idea what it is called.

It's a beautiful bug you caught, Lakshmi.
A bit soft but well composed and good POV.
The colours are amazing. The white spot in the BG is little disturbing.
Well done.

What a beautiful and interesting bug that you have well captured. The shape and metallic colors of the insect are great. The DOF is a bit shallow... Thanks for sharing Lakshmi.

Great capture, Lakshmi. The detail, light and "metallic" colours are all excellent. I like how it seems to be peering over the edge of the leaf at the bright yellow spot. Well done.

Bonjour Lakshmi, very interestig bug you have shot! Colors are amazing . I agree with Gert about the white spot and with Christian (TAZ) about DOF. Any way good work. TFS Didier.

Hello Laksmi,
Very nice capture of brilliant, shiny, metallic bug .Thanks for sharing .

Hi Lakshmi,
wunderful bug with metallic-look.
Not easy to make a sharp shot of this object because of the reflection.
But you made it very well. We also have metallic-bugs in Germany, only 4mm long and without spots. You can look at a couple of them when you're interested.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful photo,

It's so weird, is this TL ? Such vivid shiny colours. Excellent composition although the white spot distracts a little from the main subject.

Hi Lakshmi,
Great work Lakshmi...Great capture of this insect. Call it 'Green Cheetha'. Ha ha ha..just kidding :)

You have some great photographs here too, Lakshmi! Like this little guy... Great composition and the most awesome green, it is like he's radiating! Your DOF is basically good, maybe a tad narrow... Very nice details!

That insect has amazing colours. The image is a little bit out of focus upon the bug, but that don`t affect very much the photo.
Thanks for show us your work.
