This picture was taken on a hill about 270 meters high. In the background is Lagoa Conceição and further away the Atlantic Ocean.

The bug was constantly moving so I kept adjusting the camera position in an effort to get the light (cordially provided by the sun) and background just right.

One of the most interesting bug shots I've seen recently. It all works together. I like the out of focus landscape, suggesting he is perched up high.

Looks like he finally scaled the pinnacle on the mountain ;-) Not the usual background for a bug shot; I like it!

I would have chosen another point of view, the tree on the upper side is a bit distracting, considering that the challenge run with the advanced editing rules was easy fixed this.
