Hello Leonid !
Wow, what an amazing close-up on such a beautiful insect ! If I am right, I think I remember these beetles are pests, but they look wonderful, I specially like its "elephant trump". There are excellent details on the picture, super sharpness, but I also like the composition, the POV, the blurred BG and the very natural colors. Very well done !

Hallo Leonid
Stunning capture of this weevil against a very interesting grass blade. Focus, sharpness and composition is excellent. This image is of high standard and I cannot find fault. It was a great pleasure to look at this interesting weevil with its clear and prominent features. The neutral background highlights the detail to a great extent. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Hi Leonid,
wow that is the end of the road. But you made it clear, the shines and the colour of the body. lovely blurry background and the positioning is lovely in its diagonal.
Well presented in excellent presentation.
