---------- 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..

Hi Christine
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.
good work
