Muy bien aplicada la regla de tres.

Thank you Beatriz and Sandi!
This is the kind of photo my wife don't like, but I think the color combination, and the combination of the focus and out of focus is nice.
Thank you.

Hey Tomas,

Congrats on your EP for your great
macro image. OK, what kind of Argentina
insect is it? Looks like a green
iguana bug.

Hi Lou!
I don't know what insect is this. I were impressed by its color and leaf appearance. I'll try to check what kind of insect is it.
Thank you for your comment my friend. #9461511
