Hello Leonid!

I like very much mood of your macro. Simply and vivid colours, great BG and main subjects. Both flower and insect look very good. Droplets of dew are also great.

Hello Leonid,
A nice colourful macro of this green Shieldbug on what looks like a Sweet Pea flower. The technical qualities and composition are fine and the dew drops on the antennae a bonus.

Hi Leonid.
It is really superb close-up. Pictured scene is great. Both green beetle and flower are amazing and placed in the frame perfectly. DOF is great. All insect and bud are reproduced perfectly. Sharpness of the image is ultimate. I also like wonderful natural; colours and lights. Excellent use of tripod and long exposure time. Well done and TFS.

Hello Leonid.

There is an exceptional DOF in your photo. The image shows in great sharpness both insect and flower. You have rendered very well the texture of the insect and the delicate water drops from the flower. Light was used in an excelent way getting saturated and natural colors.

Thank you for sharing,

Hello Leonid !
Amazing how you always managed to get pictures with wondeful water droplets on it - I bet you like going out very early in the morning with your camera, when dew is still covering everything. ON this picture I also like the details, the vivid colors, the composition, the blurred BG. Very well done !
