So colorful- a very pretty bug, nicely seen and situated. Not so sure about the OOF stem on the right. A smaller crop without it could work too, perhaps. Nice clarity on the bug, in any case.

I love the color combo of the bug and the bg. The oof stem wouldn’t bother me except for it he weird ghosting effect along the right edge - not my usual, but I’d try to remove that in pp.
Good light,

Lovely bug and colors. Nice composition. the oof stem helps frame the bug, but agree with Craig about the ghosting.

Thanks to everyone for the comments! Craig you are right, I did not notice that, I spent some large time to get a correct red color. (edited and posted on Flickr)
