Gia sou Nikos,
Beautiful presentation of this Carpocoris mediterraneus ..
Very good composition and good sharpness.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Nikos,
I see you the same "bärfis" in Greece as we have up here. ;-)
Pretty good details and nice colours.
Maybe DOF is about shallow, the end is a bit soft, nevertheless it's a nice picture.

Hello Nikos,
A very good shot of this colorful shield bug. The front portion is super sharp showing excellent detail and beautiful color. Just a tad more DOF and the hind end would be equally as sharp. All the same I really like this presentation a lot.
