Bonjour Didier,
Qu'elle photo impressionnante! Wow! On dirait même que cet insecte est fâché :)Je trouve très spécial quand une photo d'insecte laisse tranparaitre une émotion. De très bon détails et une excellente composition. De les prendre en vol comme ça n'est pas évident et vous avez très bien réussis. Merci,

Amazing shot!! Very good. Perfect, I have no more words fore it!

Otra muestra mi amigo del control que tienes para capturar insectos en vuelo.
El DOF ha permitido un foco muy bueno, sobre todo en el extremo anterior del insecto.
Bonita composición con bellos colores y trasfondo bien logrado.
Saludos... Ricardo

Une autre preuve mon ami du contrôle que tu dois pour capturer insectes en vol.
Le DOF a permis un foyer très bon, surtout en celui extrémité antérieure de l'insecte.
Jolie composition avec belles couleurs et fond bien obtenu.
Salutations... Ricardo

Hi Didier,
An amazing in flight shot on this Longhorn Beetle. Nice sharp detail with just enough motion blur in the wings. Nice colors with a beautiful OOF backround. Looks great!

What a fantastic action shot, Didier.
I love the pose of this beetle in flight, with its legs and wings and antennae going every which way. Makes for a wonderful composition. Very sharp details on the bug, with excellent blurred wings to indicate the action. The colors of the beetle and the flower are beautiful.
TFS. : )

Bonjour Didier,
Impressionant! Il est très difficile de prendre un insecte au vol et en même temps d'avoir une image aussi détaillée. Bravo.

Wonderful capture - what a pose. Great colours and composition

PT all out today


Wow Didier, you did it again :)
Excellent composition and sharpness. The exposure POV, detail, DOF, color, and BG are top-notch as well.
Very well done mf.

Hello Didier!
You might be surprised by what I wanna say, but the first thing that comes to may mind upon seeing this image is: "Funny!" The head of the beetle directed downwards, widely spread hind legs make it look as if it were falling down and about to crash on the ground. And that's why I like it. Congratulations,

Amazing to get the eye perfectly in focus on such a small, fast-moving insect, with such a shallow DOF. The splayed legs look quite funny!
Lovely composition and background.
