Hello Leonid,
You show here a Longhorn beetle known as a pest in our forests. I hope that you will also catch once a male specimen with its overlong horns!
Like always best sharpness and this time a picture made in quite difficult light situation. Good diagonal composition.
Thanks a lot

Hi Leonid, a perfectly taken macro capture of this longhorn beetle species which i did not see before. Excellent POV/DOF with great detail and nice composition.
TFS and cheers,

Hi Leonid

Great shot of this longihorn beetle.
Good composition and sharpness.


Hallo Leonid
What an artistic fellow you have here. It reminds me very much of the trapeze artists in the circus walking the high wire only having a pole to balance them. This is truly beautiful with lovely features and details captured. An image presented in fine style, and like I have come to know you and your photography. It is always a pleasure to look at your postings. Best regards.

nice composition and interesting insect :)

Hello Leonid,

perfectly composed image with excellent details. Pleasantly dim colours telling of one of the best of times to portrait an insect: the peacefully quiet hour of sunset.

With thanks, and best regards,

P.S.: Thank you for your recent visit to my portfolio, and your very kind words. I surely have to return those compliments to you, having taken your visit as an invitation to study your fine portfolio. An honour and an incentive to me also to find myself added to your favorites. Thanks again.

Hello Leonid !
Yes, this one deserves the name of Longhorn ! :-) I like how you have composed the picture, with the antennas making a beautiful diagonal, but the colors are wonderful too - very natural, very pleasant for the eye I think. Excellent sharpness and details, too. Very well done !

Hi, Leonid.
You managed to catch a very attractive beetle and so nice scenery. Stage created by leaf is very cute. I welcome framing of the scene. Long antennas are looked very nicely. Composition of the image is also superb. My kind wishes and TFS.
Unfortunately I am not quite well now and cannot visit TN.
