---------- ON THE NET ------------------
The bloody-nosed beetle is a large, flightless species, which earns its common name from its peculiar form of defence; when threatened it exudes a drop of bright red fluid from the mouth. The rounded body is blackish in colour, often with a shiny iridescence, and the larvae are a metallic bluish colour.

good note and very natural..even the lighting...there would be some desire to use some fill flash here to amplify specific parts of the insect..the shadow areas..

I think you got it very well, the colours and POV .
The yellow background is a must.
I think also that you instead of use a flash to fill the body's bug, you may use just some post processing.
I'll make a WS to explain myself.
