Captured around my vicinity. (Colombo, Sri Lanka) about couple of months ago. I observed a couple of insects about about 10-15 minutes and suddenly this thir one came and gave me good opportunity to capture this very unusual behavior.

Hi Nilan,
Amazing! How do you manage to get these terrific shots? They look like little acrobats performing at a circus.

Interesting image - not the first time I've seen this insect mating/intruding behavior. I think the colors are very good. The image appears not quite sharp to me? Did you consider adjusting the composition to diagonal or horizontal?   Posted: 09/17/2020 14:20:01

Amazing capture, Nilan. Your outside macro captures are so good, especially for being handheld. I'm jealous.

I think Bill is right about the orientation. I took the liberty of rotating the image, cleaning up the noise and adding some clarity. Thoughts?   Posted: 09/18/2020 15:32:03

I like Tom's clean up, but prefer the horizontal image flipped.   Posted: 09/18/2020 16:05:29

Hi Tom Thank for your comment. How do you clean the noise and increase the clarity.   Posted: 09/19/2020 06:02:49

OMG, an insect conga line! Super capture! Definitely would benefit from a crop, either one but I think I like the first better. Something about the second feels crowded and awkward to me. Your background works perfectly with the simplicity of the actual subject. Great diagonal composition!   Posted: 09/18/2020 22:56:03
