Hi Dmitry,
Wonderful shot,very good composition,excellent sharpness and details.
Thanks for your sending/sharing.

Excellent, Dmitry!
To take a good shot from a 4 mm big, dark and shiny beetle is an artistic act of the highest order. You did very well! Congratulations! I still wonder about your technical details (how you used the flash etc).
My best regards to you, Dmitry,
