After I finished my WASP nest shooting I found this beetle inside the rose flower. I would not reach to the front POV but I like the beetle inside the flower. Hope you all like the view.

Hello Vignesh,

You've captured this Blister Beetle with a rose very nicely. Details of the beetle has come out nicely. Contrasting colour composition slightly distracting my eyes.you've managed to record the insect details very well in this camera settings.

keep shooting :-)

Hi Viggi,

This is a superb one....good colours and PoV...and is that a little spider hiding in the petals of the rose?

The colours here both on the beetle and the rose are spectacularA very rich and smooth capture with good lighting and contrasts.

I have seen this beetles and they have a tendency to keep crawling even when they realise you are around they just keep going up and down the flower and hence focusing is a bit difficult on them.Despite this fact , you have done a decent job wit this capture.The details on the primary subject-beelte, is quiet sharp and i like the way the crawl pattern is depicted well in your shot.

Very well done.
TFS & Cheers

P.S:Thanks for the visit to my gallery and your nice words.You yourself have a nice gallery here, young man:)
