Hi Tanja.
You continue to make wonders with your camera. I like your close-up so much. Excellent magnification ratio, sharpness and composition. Framing and presentation of the shot are very nice too. My best wishes and TFS.

You've done wonders with the way you've handled the light in this capture: the dark BG works very well to set off the colours of your subject

Hi Tanja, splendid macro, lovely details and wonderful colors, very well done, ciao Silvio
