Here is a picture I took of a Green Planthopper. Note the improvements made to the picture using Helicon. (Watermarked for protection.) (Second place winner at BetterPhoto.com's photo contest)

Yes, it is a Siphanta acuta Flatid planthopper. AKA Green planthopper.

Beautifull shot Ariel! Special mood and worth it's prize!
What is your equipment (I am just curious)

Well, like I said, it did win second place at the BetterPhoto.com photo contest for December. Thanks!
Equipment: I used my Fujifilm S5200, without (I think) flash, and an Opteka macro add-on lens (probably +8 or +10 diopter), 1/100s, f/3.3, 83mm equiv. zoom, ISO: 200. (Now I use HOYA macro lenses, as they produce less aberrations. You can see some of the pictures I got with my HOYAs near the bottom of my BetterPhoto gallery
. Some pictures were taken with the Opteka, the other macros with the HOYA, as mentioned on each individual picture's page.)

Thank's a Ariel lot for the information!
I am very surprised of what you acheive with your bridge!
The tone gamut is beautifull and post processing just perfect!
I'll go to see your macro with hoya!

"with your bridge" What do you mean by that?
