Cette magnifique composition met tres bien en valeur toute la beaute de ce meloide noir-bleute. La photo permet aussi de voir toute l'agilite de cet insecte qui parait plutot pataud a cause de son abdomen surdimensionne. Belle gestion de couleurs, de contraste et d'arriere-plan donnant un rendu tres harmonieux plein de vivacite. Patrick

Hi Didier,
Excellent exposure and a beautiful composition. I like the sharpness and the clear details of the insect. But I have a question, are you sure it is f/7.1? It seems like f/4.6 or something because even the closest leaves of the flower are out of focus.
Best regards,
Sayat

bonjour didier

Hello Didier,
Excellent macro.
Lovely detail and colours,nice composition.
Nice work,very well done.

Cette photo est splendide en tous points :
ntteté impeccable, couleurs très douces de la fleur et du fond qui constrastent avec le bleu foncé de l'insecte, composition.
J'apprécie aussi la mise en valeur par l'encadrement.

Hi Didier
This is a great close-up of the blister beetle climbing all over the host plant. I think a stand alone photo of this plant on its own would also make for some lovely TN material.
The composition is good and the colours are stunning. The DOF is spot-on giving excellent details on the beetle. The BG is very well removed and out of focus and the exposure was managed very well.
Great work and TFS.

Loot
