WOW absolutely great picture. Freaky creature. I like the colors, the lighting and the reflection in the floor. 9/10.

I you got rid of the orange backgrond at the top. it would be a 10/10.

Marimbondo (Portuguese for wasp in English) sounds like a dance which is what this critter seems to be doing. Great capture! (Although I agree with Tim onremoving the orange at the top.) We have the same insect (wasp)in North America as seen below though not nearly as good a photo as yours; colors, etc. When the weather gets warm here and the marimbondos come out to dance I'll try again though getting that reflection will be a challenge.

That is a great close up - nice sharp edges around the insect and good colours. The reflection also adds character. Nice dept of field as well really positioning the insect into the foreground.

I agree that the orange at the top does detract becuase it is so large and close to the top of the insects wing - personal preference.

Good work.

There's plenty of capability with the camera's built-in macro mode, as you've illustrated. Love the reflection at the bottom. Reminds me of a fighter jet about to take off.

That's the reason it has such excellent depth of field which isone of the nice things about a larger mp camera.You can get good dof and then crop to further magnify and retain the quality. Cropping is about the only reason to go with more than 2mp, IMO, unless you're looking to print upwards of 11x14.
