This Reduviid bug is very common in Cyprus and easily spotted on plants and trees. I spent almost 1 hour to get this shot to share with TN friends. Hope you like it all.

Best regards

Hallo Merih
What a striking and most lovely image. This photo is sharp and reflects great detail. Your time spent taking this image will be well rewarded. You have captured this Reduviid bug with great clarity. The markings and patterns on the body are so beautiful and impressive. Although a common bug to you, it was new to me and I enjoyed looking at all its different features. Thanks for sharing, it was a pleasure to look at.
Best regards

Hi Merih,

Nice colour,focus and detail on the bug which is definitely not one we see in our part of the world. The bright area below distracts a bit, but your nice lines pull it through.



Merih gerçekten nefis bir yakın çekim yapmışsın. Bir saat beklemene değdi bence. Renkler ve detaylar albenili. Eline sağlık. Kıbrıs'tan selamlar.

Hi Merih..
Excellent composition and beautiful picture full of life and bright colors.
Well done.
Best Wishes

Merih merheba. gerçekten sen bu işi kıvırdın. bayram hoca da hep söyler. Bu iş sabır gerektirir diye. Sen de bunu yapmışsın. Eline sağlık.

Çok güzel yakalamışsın Merih. Zemin ve renkler çok güzel.
Eline sağlık.

:) Yeğenim, bu makro çlışması çok güzel. Gercekten iyi bir anda kareyi almışsın. WS'yi yaptım ama puanlamayı unutmuşum:(.
Eline sağlık.

Merhaba Merih,
ottima macro, molto bella la composizione diagonale dell'insetto con lo sfondo dai forti contrasti di luce gestiti molto bene, buona la definizione dei dettagli.

Hello Merih,
A fine macro of this Reduviid Bug taken from a good side POV with good sharpness against the OOF natural green BG. I like the composition on the sloping stem.
TFS this fine image,
Regards from Sweden,

Hallo Merih,

Good macro shot.
Exellent pov, good dof and with beautiful colours.


What a strange creature! Beautiful colors and detail!

Hello Merih,
Captured well with the soft and gentle lighting over the whole composition, simply beautiful!
the subject is sharp with nice colour and detail in the shot
this is a good one
many thanks for the sharing

Hello Merih

Well congratulations on hunting down and photographing this insect.
The colours are very good.
Lovely lighting.
I like the natural pose in a natural setting.
A new one for me.


Thanks for your kind critique on my new picture of a dragonfly, Merih.
This is an exotic bug you have shot.
The focus on the subject is very good.
I would make only one suggestion: keep more space in front of the subject and less at its rear. This helps in giving a sense of expanse to the picture.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Merih,

Your patience was rewarded with a fine capture of this Reduviid Bug - a new one for me. He is very colorful and interesting looking. Very good details as he climbs the diagonal branch. He stands out well from the lovely background.

Hello Merih !
Great picture of this bug - I like his shape, he looks a bit unusual. I also like the twig making a nice diagonal, the vivid colors, the blurred BG. Very pleasant to the eye. It was well worth waiting one hour ! Very well done !

Hi cypturk,

Your surname sounded familiar here in TN. This shot is brilliant along that diagonal twig. The focus and lighting is very good under shallow depth.

TFS and best regards,

Hi Merih,
