It is amazing how zoos can attract so many wild creatures!
This is a fine capture of a red bug: nice and sharp with excellent DOF and with fine contrasting BG that I guess is an alga-covered tree trunk. Great composition and lighting too!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

I too had shot this insect in India last year, JC, but it was green in colour. Of course, I am going by your ID of it as a Cotton Stainer. It certainly is the same creature except for the difference in colour.
A brilliant shot from the top which shows its features and colours effectively.

Nice composition with very good contrast (I like differences between red colouration of bug and the stone BG). DOF, POV and details are as always very good, also the note is informative :)

Very eye-catching colour on this bug! Looks even better on that interesting, almost artistic background...
Good light really brings out the shining colours, sharp fine details!
