Loving nature (92)

My town has around 100 thousand inhabitants. I was born here, so that I know the place quite well.

I'm telling you this because this photo was taken in a place here I had never been before. I usually take my shots at Mocambo Park or at Lagoa Grande (Big Lagoon). This one, however, was taken in a vacant lot with insects profusion. There are very beautiful flowers there, and many kinds of insects make their living in the area. The day was cloudy, but as soon as the sun comes, I want to go back to the place in order to take more pictures.

P.S.: thanks to Shírley, my girlfriend, who was with me and was the one who spotted the couple above...

Hi Livio,

I saw that the photo could be sharpened some more and did the USM in Photoshop CS. (200%,0.5,1) Then I used NeatImage to get rid of the BG noise. I hope you like it.

Kind regards
Gerhard
