Hi Josep.
These months this species was a main my photo model. Weather is bad enough, there are not insects around almost only these beetles still stay in the yard. You managed to get a wonderful shot with great reproduction of its colouration and all details. I also superb BG. It is blurred amazingly. Bravo. Excellent job and many thanks for hearty congratulations on 200th post.

The DOF is wht stands out isn this shot, Josep.
Very sharp and brilliant details!
