Hi Erwin,
A very good low POV to capture this wasp navigating on this yellow flower.
A very sharp macro indeed, with all the necessary details!
Great lighting and perfect color saturation.
I like the totally blurred green BG.
Well done. A very neat presentation.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Hello Erwin,

This is a fine close-up with the focus firmly on the insect, with the b/g blurred, but providing enough details to deliver a context. The focus is probably sharper on the tail than on the head, but these insects move at such speed that I feel I may be nit-picking, here.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Ciao Erwin

Fine details in the insect, and it is no wonder they are attracted to colourful flowers like this!
Pleasant nature macro work, DoF is just fine leaving the unimportant parts in a blur...
Strong colours where the lovely yellow contrasts well with the green background!



Hello Erwin,

What a marvelous focus you have achieved on this dark beauty, the wasp!
This macro capture is an excellent one with great clarity and perfect contrast between the perfectly focused wasp, and the green blurry BG. The colors are original and very eye-catchy. The sharpness and POV are excellent, whereas the position of the flower and the subject, is well thought within a natural frame.
Well done!

Have a nice weekend.


Hi Erwin, Nice macro shot, good POV and perfect colors, but in my opnion, i think there's lack of DOF, if this shot taken at f-8 and above then the whole wasp will be in focus( Just my personal opnion ) hope u don mind..! and TFS :)


Hi Erwin

Very nice close-up shot, great colours, comp and detail!!!
Well Done Erwin
