Very weird looking thing, I like it! Great colours and I liek the OOF one behind. Great note too. Thanks Gerhard.
Gerhard, Great detail on your subject Fruit Chafer. I found the note very interesting because it reminded me of my childhood & the things we used to do with "bugs" also. Also noticed antenae down in subject & up on 2nd Chafer...

Another specialist among us,
Well gerhard, this is really a good capture, with fantastic colours and not one but two with one shot. De dof is very nice, and the note is good, great job.

I can remember the string too. Very nice capture and thanks for taking me back a good couple of years. are you sure you did not find strings in the spiders lair as well?

I took my granddaughter to an insect fair once, and they sold beetles that eat rotten wood, with tiny chains and pins to attach to clothing......... not for me! These are weird!

You arranged those one manually or asked to pose for you? :)
Parecen un par de acorazados.
Tal vez falta algo de detalle o nitidez, pero imagino que las condiciones de la captura no eran las mejores.
Excelente perspectiva y DOF.
Instructiva nota tambien.
They seem a pair of battleships.
Perhaps lack something of detail or clearness, but I imagine that the conditions of the capture were not the best ones.
Excellent perspective and DOF.
Instructive note also.

Air-gun targets, I used to shoot these pests with the airgun off my Robebia flowers. Maybe I can nail some later this month, before I NAIL them! Baie mooi, Gerhardt.

Very interesting, Gerhard - I haven't ever seen these guys before. Their colorful yellow-black pattern is quite something. Good diagonal composition, and the shallow DOF seems to accentuate the graphical qualities of the chafers. Good catch.

Gerhardt, another beautiful shot. Interesting creatures. New to me. DOF on the front animal is a good idea. The blurred second animal gives the impression there are more.
