Hi Nikos,perfect capture from the top of this curious specie,a master of camouflage in a perfect sharpness and bright colors,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Cuadrada.Oportuno composition perfect time to catch when the insect moves across a field of clover contrasts perfectly against the brown of her body, appreciating every detail of it.It would have been nearly impossible on some dry grass where they are almost invisible. Nikos Congratulations !!!
