Hi Marie.
I like this superb close-up. Pictured scene, framing of the image are great. I am impressed with brilliant exposure of the petals and nice reproduction of all details of the beetles. My kind regards and compliments.

You've captured these longhorns with a perfect exposure under the finely diffused illumination from an overcast sky Marie, the amount of observable detail is very high indeed! TFS this fine image my friend.

Hello Marie,
A fine capture of a pair of mating Tawny Longhorns with a lot of pollen on them from the Ox-eye Daisy flower that they are on. Good details shown from this side POV.
Though this is common in Europe it is absent in Scandinavia but we have similar-looking species.
Thanks for sharing this fine macro of a species new to me.
