[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yes, it's already my 100th post to TN :-)
Time flies quickly. I'm really happy I joined TN - there is so much to learn through this excellent website and through your photos.

I thought the species was Cerambyx cerdo but Nikola Rahme corrected me it's actually:

Cerambyx dux
Family: Cerambycidae

Southern European and Near East species, polyphagous, with larvae leaving in fruit and ornamental trees or brushes (Prunus, Elaeagnus, Crataegus etc.).
Thanks a lot, Nikola!!!
Once again TN showed that it's not only fun but also great exchange of information :-)

Hello Michal!
Congratulations on your 100th post and hope to see your 1000th post here.Wonderful close up.Clear details,POV,framing and composition are excellent.

Nice one Michal, a little dark at the rear of the body but other wise a good clear image.
I know you said they like feeding on fruit, was it possed on the pear or did you find it feeding there?
Looks very simular type of bettle to the one you identified for me when I was in switzerland.
TFS yours Robert

excellent shot of real life moment..
your note is not only interesting but brings out the eco requirements of preserving a species...their habitat no matter what they do to it and their food..
well taken and explained

Hi Michal,
congratson your 100th post.
Very good detials and DOF. Well composed and nice colours.
Well done.

A bit late, but a well deserved 'grats! For the 100'th and for the photo itself.
We got this one in Romania too, quite common in certain times; I don't think that Romanian law protects it in the present.

Regards, Petru

Very clear and sharp Michal. Excellent DOF, detail and light in this top-shot. Well shown while feeding. Very well done.
Merry Christmas!

Congrats Michal,
Excellent details and beautiful composition.TFS

Dear Michal!
This species belongs to Cerambyx dux, not cerdo, and this species not lives in Poland.
Yours Nikola
