Hola Cristina y Felipe,
Gran escarabajo peludo. Una toma con un color y detalles tan buenos o mejores que los de las setas.
Seguro que algún experto pone nombre pronto a esta belleza.
Un abrazo para ambos,

I've never seen such a hairy beetle before!
Excellent sharp close-up and the light is impressive. Nice composition too.

WOW! This beetle reallly look fabulous! He is indeed a rare seen species on TN!
I really LOVE the details here - very well usage of the apperture - having all those numerous hairs in focus and still leaving room for a nice blurry BG.
Also great POV, impecable lighting and lovely colors.
Another joy to watch...great post, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

What a furry beetle I have never seen one like that. He does resemble a chafer in a lot of respects. Great capture the details are superb (especially the fur), nice POV, good colours and DOF. Nice shot

Hi Christina & Felipe,

This macro has made tremendous impression for me. Perfect sharpness and details of the bug. Excellent diagonal composition. Nice light and shadow, colours and contrast. POV and DOF are extremely exact and impressive. BRAVO.

What a strange looking beetle, Felipe and Cristina.
You did a great job of bringing out the "hairs" in great detail.
The excellent exposure shows off the colors nicely.
Excellent POV exposing all the odd features of this unusual bug.
TFS. : )

Felipe, dalo por seguro, me lo accaba de confirmar un amigo portugues especialista es Tropinota Squalida Pilossa sin ninguna duda para el, es que la pilosidad no da lugar a equivocacion con esas manchas. Lo que le sorprende es la epoca, pq normalmente ya no se ven, lo que el no sabe es si en los bosques tardan mas a esconderse. Le conteste que quizas pq alli todavia hay mas calor. Foto genial de muy buena calidad.
PD: de Chafer creo que no hay ninguno que lleve al mismo tiempo pilosidad y manchas.

Very sharp and very detailed work. ID? Suffice to say he's furry and beetle-oid ;-} Actually kinda cute, call me strange :)
Very well done mf.

He's an ugly critter Felipe and Cristina. Not my favourite insect and especially with those hairs! But you managed to show him well. Good job, TFS

Wow, what an unique beetle you got here...
An excellent shooting angle showing its hair and a perfect use of lighting, great sharpness and details....

Hello FeCr Gang :-)
You're right my friend - this one is rather weird and, of course, I like it very much! Beetle looks similiar to some species, but without hairs. Maybe it is some kind of mutant :-) Anyway - very well taken - I like especially details [every hair is sharp] and exposure. You both are masters my friends!

Extraño el desconido peludo Felipe, pero muy bien retratado con agudeza, colorido, y adecuado DOF, destacándolo sobre el fondo difuso.
El POV no permite ver la "cara" (si estos bichos tienen cara) pero permite apreciar con total claridad la principal caractéristica que es su largo pelaje.
Una excelente captura a baja velocidad con buen foco realmente.
Gracias y un gran saludo... Ricardo

Hi Felipe and Cristina, :) Now you are two... :)
It's been a while I know. I trust you are well?
Your insect looks very similar to the one I captured a while ago (http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Africa/South_Africa/photo33333.htm). Mine was a Fruit Chafer. The details and sharpness is impressive. Very well done.

The 350D comes again ;-) Nice hairy beetle here ! Good sharpness and DOF. I like the warm colors. Congratulations Felipe.
PS : I am jalous of your shots, these days I work again on my house, so no time for photos :-(

The clarity on your shots are always so amazing Felipe!
Oh, Cristina! And two fast shots! So well executed.
This is no exception. A furry beetle? Who would have thought...
