an impressive picture of the tiger beetle. In particular, I like the superb point of view for which you have to lay down flat on the ground. I often use this position in order to really merge with the macro-world. Usually, tiger beetles are very shy and very fast. So, I think it was not easy to obtain this picture which is furthermore well focused and sharp.
Best wishes, Peter

What an interesting creature standing tall and erect, Leo!
The image is small and beautiful, and precisely on account of that.
Superb POV, DOF, colours and clarity.

This is truely a formidable capture!
The details, textures, colors and metallic reflection here are simply PERFECT! You managed them all so well!
urther more, the low POV is exceptional and the DOF is terrific, keeping all the edges of the beetle in full focus while blurring the BG nicely.
The exposure and flash work is also great and the composition is lovely!
All-in-all a fantastic job!
Bravo and TFS
