[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Red and black colouring apparently signifies “not very tasty” to hungry birds. As a result, perhaps, they are often more out in the open than the less colourful variety. Maybe, as well, for this reason they also don’t need to rely so much on acoustic communication as they can easily be visually identified by their potential mates.

Cześć Paweł,

jako dzisiejszy sąsiad wystawiam pierwszy komentarz- ale nie tylko dlatego. Bardzo podoba mi się to ujęcie, dobry kontrast i żywe kolory, ładny owłosiony chrząszcz w naturalnym otoczeniu.


dobre zdjecie, ladny egzemplarz z piekna czupryna, zazdroszcze mu :-)

This is a very vibrant insect - what super colours it has.
But you focus and sharpness are very good. Those colours and hairs stand out so well

Great macro, Pawel.
Beautiful hairy little beetle. Good details, very nice colours and well composed.
