I took this shot in Vietnam, on the way to Mekong delta, just before bording a motor boat we had to walk along this dirt trail and I stumbled on alot of LONGAN which is the premature fruit as you can see infront of you, I was lucky to capture this insect which was nibbling at the shell of this lovely sweet fruit, in English it is directly translated to DRAGON EYE. Im not sure what kind of bug this is, but I think it is a type of beetle type bug.

I hope you like it

Interesting capture Daniel.
Strange and colorful tiny beast.
Well presented, good perspective.
I dared to make a work... I hope you like it.

Interesting shot, Dan, with great color contrast between the bug and the fruit. Good perspective and DOF, and as we can see in the WS, a tighter crop also looks good on this one. Well done.

I find this very good, soft and good composition, very nice work Dan.

Hi Dan,

The creature is a nymph of a bug from Tessaratomidae family.
