A Mediterranean Shield Bug (Carpocoris mediterraneus) feeding on a little seed...
...the head is about 2mm across!
Very nice shot! I think it would be better if the whole of the insect was in focus cos the patterns on the back look very interesting!
Very Impressive! Can't fault it.
Super macro work, excellent sharpness!!!
And a beautiful composition. Fantastic attempt on a head-on shot.
Incredible. Really beautiful. Click. Alejandro.
Thanks for this image---A very interesting bug--It is very difficult to get an entire insect in focus at this close range. A head on shot is a good alternative.
Wow! What a capture! I was at London Zoo last week and enjoyed the "Bug World" exhibit but met the limitations of my amateur camera (Fuji Finepix S3000) when I tried to take macro shots of some of the iinsects. : ( Time to upgrade methinks!!!
Woah! What a monster! Another lovely macro insect. Thanks for sharing!! LOL
Great capture with excellent dof
Superb macro, great colours and DOF.
DOF works very well here. Excellent shot. Loads to look at.
Amazing detail. Great macro shot.
Good heavens, that's brilliant.
An Excellent close up shot great work true quality here well done.
Quite spooky - excellent
Thank you all for such kind and generous comments!
it would be great to have had more depth of field but I was kind of looking for the shallow precise focus on the head in this one. I have others where the whole body is in focus and they are a completely different style.
All comments are greatly appreciated!
Amazing shot wonderful detail and DOF EXCELLENT lynex
Excellent focus and good use of the shallow DOF Tim. Another first rate macro shot. The detail and colour density are spot on
I don't usually comment on the insect shots, but the closeness, the detail and the shallow DOF really caught me here.
Well DOne and CLick
YUCK Tim, horrid - the bug that is, great macro work
I wouldn't like this on my wall, but I admire your skill in capturing this image. You've even managed to get good colour contrast between subject and background. Click.
Fantastic shot, wonderful detail very well done
Super macro shot.
Brilliant macro shot. Love it.

Hello Tim, such wonderful macro work, with good colours and the sharpness is so impressive. Great shot.
