[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Longicornio del Pino is the common name in Spain.

Scientific name is: Monochamus galloprovincialis
Order Coleoptera, family Cerambycidae

Its size is 15-25 millimeters.
Adults appear in spring feeding on the tender shoots of pine trees. Then they look for diseased trees where they mate and reproduce. The female makes a hole on the crust of the tree to putt the eggs. Hatching occurs after two weeks and the larvae is inserted under the bark and then into the wood. They are commonly known as sawyer beetles or sawyers, as their larvae bore into dead or dying trees.
Un saludo.

Bonjour Jose,
Une belle image de ce coléoptère perché sur une fleur séchée. J'adore les couleurs "terre" de cette photo. Bonne netteté et belle présentation décentrée. Bien vu!

Wonderful in colours and composition - like!

Superb capture of this insect with long 'horns', Jose.
The plain brown BG supports this capture a great deal.
