My first critique!
Very good shot of this little tiger beetle! It's very sharp and the composition is excellent! The DOF is just right and you have the background very well blurred. The level you got to when you took this shot is also very good.

A beautiful cicindelid with awesome mouth parts Haraprasan, captured from an all revealing lateral POV and in fine focus, both this one and the WS, surely Radomir will love this fine dedication.

Wow! What a great dedication!!! Thank you very much for this honour :)
According to the species name, it is Calomera angulata (Fabricius, 1798), a female :) You presented this species with all important morphological characters so it was really easy to identify it :)
By the way, except this species, there are 9 other species from this genus known from India. Anyway, I believe that its size was only some 15-18 mm :) And in total in India there are more than 200 species of Cicindelidae!!! :>
Once again thank you very much for this lovely dedication!
If you agree I would like to add this picture to theme "Tiger beetles of the world" :)

by all means yes...Radomir is sensational and you both think quite alike even though from different areas...An especially well done image focused well on the subject and simple but succinct notes.

This is a great night shot of this Beetle, HP.
With fill flash in use, you have succeeded in capturing the subject in sharp and clear detail, especially in respect of those peculiar patterns and colours on its back.
Radomir, the expert in this field, would be happy with your dedication.
TFS and all the best.

This is an excellent macro of this tiger beetle, Calomera angulata. The POV and pose are great and the sharpness extraordinary.
As Tiger beetles are normally very active in the sunshine it was a good idea to take a shot in poor light using flash, which you did very well.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

This is a splendid side view of this Beetle showing very sharp details. Its pattern and colours are beautiful and it is very hairy!
TFS and kind regards, Ulla
