What a powerful and striking macro image, Pawel! I am enjoying the shallow dept of field and the incredible detail here. Not an easy shot in my opinion! well done!

Hi Pawel , wow this is a fantastic macro. 'monster' indeed. amazing close in view of this beetles incredible face , I bet it was difficult to get so close to this beetle ? it reminds me of a tiger beetle which are very keen eyed predators...

great image , nice detail , point of view , color, , and composition , I also like the shallow depth of field.

Hi Pawel,

Very nice use of DOF, emphasizing big eyes and scary mandibles. TFS. Ali.
