Hello Marc,
nice first picture you post to TN. It is not easy to achieve good pictures of 'iridescent' beetles. However, you managed very well. The focus is good but depth of field could be better so that also the posterior yellow parts become sharper.
I would like to know in which part of Irian you took the picture.
Best wishes and welcome to TN, Peter
