Hi Horia,

As mikolaj has already said this is a wonderful take the details are very sharp really nice dof and great pov and colours tfs.


Nice sharp and well define image. Good color which are nicelly saturated, strong blacks and well controled highlights.

What I find indecent, is to see those "2 males" in a compromising situation...)))))

Hi Horia,

A fine macro of these two bugs. Their polished shells are very sharp, and the textures nicely captured. There is very little noise considering the high ISO used. I imagine you chose that to use the small aperture. Denis' note is too funny!

Best regards,

Hi Horia,

A real decisive moment...great capture, beatiful colors and nice POV.

Fantastic macro image! The detail and composition are both very good. Were extension tubes used to get this shot? The green background works great with the red subject. TFS

Hi Horia,
Excellent macro shot, fantastic detail and colour. Well done on some very nice work. Best wishes

Hi, Horia. Good observation and a lovely photograph.Nice capture of this beautiful pair
from a good pOv with good depth of field, colors and sharpness. Cheers and TFS.

Hello Horia,

Well seen and captured. A rare natural moment of love. Excellent quality image. Thanks.


Hi Horia,

Marvellous shot, because of 1000 speed background become so blur which give brilliant effect, and offcourse 18 aperture is the most sharp aperture for details and obviously depth of field become excellent.

Over all the timing , lightning, composing, and framing is excellent. what a beautiful and memorable shot this is .

very well taken

best regards


Hello Horia,

Well, they are in love :)
Excellent macro shot.
Focus, sharpness, light and colors are perfect.

Best regards,

Hi Horia,

I hope you didn't disturb these guys making love ;)

A perfectly focused shot with great sharpness, nice blurry BG which gives the subject a 3-D look, wonderful color contrast between the red and green and a "censored" POV of course :D

A great macro capture, my friend!

Best greetings,

Hi Horia,
I can not write correctly .... flagranti.
Good catches of beetles in the forest, what a naughty.
The bottom line: good sharpness, lighting. Congrats.

Bonjour Horia

Très jolie scène animalière avec de superbes couleurs!!!
Les détails sont excellents!!

Hello Horias! Very well done macro! The sharpness on the subject is impressive and the background is beautiful. The dark parts are a bit too too dark though. Well done,

Hola Horia
Un buen macro en el se muestra el pricipal instinto animal que es la reproduccion de su especie , excelente nitidez en la que se puede apreciar con claridad la textura de sus caparazon y un colorido muy acertado ,mostrado sobre un difuminado y suave fondo que acentua el momento , en mi opinion un fantastico macro con una impecable realizacion

Buen dia
Un saludo

please I have a problem with such insects on my trees; they do the same sportive action and after babys eat all the leaves, so the trees are tireed and give no fruit...
have you an ecological solution ?

apart that problem I must said your macro is more than well done...

Congrats Horia ;)))
Fantastic photo...TFS...
J ;)

Hi Horia,
nice colours in reddish and bright. Most of all, excellent timing of your captured insects. The blurry background is smooth and helpful in giving a nice presentation.


Hello Horia,
Perfect scene, super macro.
