Wonderful composition Kumiko! Beautiful color, complimenting but not distracting from this fine and delicate insect! A lovely macro! Congrats on POTD!

Outstanding detail on this unusual little insect...love the eyes, the segmented body which is demarcated so well, & the delicate and transparent wing detail. A very lovely colorful composition with the beautiful poppy inclusion...big congrats, Kumiko!

A very interesting and detailed image of this bug! Those transparent wings with the color showing through, and the eyes are amazing. Congratulations, Kumiko!

Thank you so much, Robin-Lee, Pat, Mustafa and Joyce! He had those metallic eyes, my other photo of his eyes was creepy!
