A great looking close up of unusual looking nymphs, which are really very well lit and composed. Terrific work.

Excellent grouping and details, vivid reds. The flash lighting is super.

love the graphic quality to the image. The colour pallet is wonderful and the black negative space sets off the entire image. If I could change one thing it would be to remove the one little dark vein in the top right corner with a small crop. All in all it is a great image.

Thanks everyone for your feedback and comments.

Kim - I fully agree with your suggestion to crop away the little dark vein in the top right corner. It does look better. Really appreciated it. Thanks!

Carol, Darren - thanks for your comments.

Darren - shot this recently at Margaret Drive, quite near your place :-). There were many varied colours types including green and the adults. Another good place to shoot these stink bugs is at Lakeside.
