Hi Nikos,excellent capture of this rare and interesting specie,very good macro,fine detail and bright colors,i like it! Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano.

Bonsoir Nikos,
C'est très beau malgré un cadrage beaucoup trop serré et un très léger manque de profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
