Very fine sharp capture of "Daddy Longlegs", not exactly my favourite insect as it rattles its long legs! Excellent details here though and fine colours. Well composed too.
Many thanks, Ulla

Not often we see tipulids on TN!
you have captured this Cranefly with fine sharpness on the body and most of the legs. The diagonal composition on the birch bark is excellent.
Thanks for sharing this one,

The focus on and the sharpness of the body is admirable.
Best wishes, Peter

...and if you get close enough at nighttime and put a flash on it, it will appear as total gold...I mis-ID'ed one of these last year...thinking it was some giant mosquito..Your image is much better and your notations are complete!

Buen enfoque y excelente encuadre de esta típula. Bien cortadas las patas y suficiente profundidad para observar bien la parte del cuerpo. Buen aprovechamiento de la luz. Preciosa.

Very cool insect. I remember when I was a kid, my friends and I were afraid of these, we thought they were giant mosquitoes.

Hello Marie, v. sharp selective focusing on the body and head. I like the way you filled the frame with as much of the legs as you could giving us a size perspective of how long the legs are. Good exposure and detail. tfs Rgds Necip.

Hello Marie, Incredible sharp and nicely colored this image is, the depth of field and composition are great as well. Thank you Marie for this fine posting.
Hi Marie Christine!
This is a very impressive macro picture with good sharpness and a great richness of details. I don't know exactly what the underground is made (old wall?), but it suits the insect very well and creates a pleasant unity of color tones.
