A superb macro shot. I love that semi-metallic blue color on the beetle. The detail and DOF is outstanding here. As always, you have great informative notes to further my education.

A beautiful beetle with its shiny blue armor.
Yes, this is quite common in Eastern Europe, but it's quite hard to photograph them as they are very fast and agile.(Afler all it must be, it's a predator).

Hola Michal:The great metallic coloring is very attractive for the view, very well illuminated and contrasted. The color of its eyes is charming. The colors incrusted in the earth give him a special touch and they capture the attention finely. An excellent macro, congratulations. Saludos Cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*

Great shot of this beetle Michal. I love the glossy blue-black against the matt grey of the slate. Lovely detail and sharpness and composition too. Your note is very interesting, I got a shot of a ground beetle myself and now I'll be able tell which sex it is. TFS :)
