He simply landed on my Turkey's road map, just when I was studying it for my further drive from Antalya eastwards.
By the way, this one and previous uploads from Antalya was been erased by mistake from my SD card. Just a few days ago I've learned from a "good" friend how to recover tham !
Now I feel myself lika a child who finds a lost toy again !!
Bu kare ve son günlerde Antalyadan gönderdiğim bazı kareleri yanlışlıkla silmiş ve de çok üzülmüştüm. Kısa bir süre önce bir dostum, silinen karelerin nasıl geri kazanıldıklarını öğretti, ve şimdi ben, uzun süre önce kaybettiği bir oyuncağı yeniden bulmuş çocuğun mutluluğunu yaşıyorum.
Bu kare de onlardan biri. Arabamın üzerine yaydığım karayolları haritasından bir yer ararken, bu güzel yaratık geldi, haritanın üzerine kondu !

Brilliant! This is a very funny photo, and such perfect timing to capture this little guy. He represents all of us as we work around the world, sharing it with each other. His pose is perfect too, I think he knew he was being photographed and put his best side forward :)
All the best

Congratulations on having managed to recover some images from your erased SD card! You must be very happy!!
An excellent capture of this insect as he landed on your map - perhaps he was wanting to travel with you too and see some new places. A lovely image with lots of details and some lovely colours, especially against the colourful background of the map!

Lep trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepe boje.
Insekt proucava kartu, kojim putem da ide ...
Neka bude srecan.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Beautiful moment ...
Good time recording and contrast, beautiful colors.
Insect studies the map, which way to go ...
So be happy.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best.

Hello dear Mesut,
this is a funny and intriguing scene, captured very effectively. I like very much the way the map extends throughout the frame, the presence of the elegant insect draws our attention to the land formations, the names and the routes on the map. You've used the light most efficiently, the colours are well defined and pleasing. Depth and sharpness have worked very well for the successful realization of your idea. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

das war wirklich ein Glückstreffer! Sehr gut erkannt und umgesetzt. Besser kann man das Motto dieser Site nicht illustrieren. Kompliment!

Lol! The preying mantis cant seem to decide which city to visit on the map next! Very good use of a shallow dof with good sharpness. The blue and red lines form a diagonal triangle which frames the insect nicely. Have a great week!

Lucky you on this occasion really !
And a nice macro shot furthermore. She is showing you the way with her right front leg, lol !

amazing macro shot. Fine comment in note. Well done photo.
Have a nice evening.

I`m glad you were able to recreate this image. A sharp and clear close-up view of the scene. It`s hard to plan for scenes like this - you have to get your camera ready whenever the opportunity is there. Fine colours and nice compo. Great work:) Thanks.
Have a nice evening.
bartekp (4746) 2013-12-04 14:39
what can i say...that's great photo? Superb macro composition!
have a nice evening
jcpix (13930) 2013-12-04 19:39
A fun photo, I like this...and it certainly fits into the theme you were wanting to convey! I would assume most people would have brushed it away in haste, but you were wise to take advantage of the situation and be creative with your camera.
Quick thinking and smartly executed to deliver this spontaneous and well envisioned capture. He probably went back to his friends and said "O.K., i know the route now, let's go!" :)
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2013-12-04 20:40
a-ha, really a great Trekearthian... You captured this creature superbly with great clarity and sharpness. Like the tonal quality of it. Enjoyed the idea you delivered here. Superb one. Tfs.

What a biological revolution!
Even insects today use a road map.
Excellent macro shot!
Best regards, Paul

A fantastic macro with this insect walking along the map! This is a very good capture.

once I lost a folkloric festival movie I did in Colombia, it was a sad mistake and I was very upset with me after that.
very nice image showing the animal against the map and its colors.
