Good species and happy to see one from the red list but hope this one prospers. Yes, the face with big eyes looks like a squirrel (with our those antenna) to me, interesting one. The WS image shows it in textbook perspective. tfs.

You have managed a fantastically original and impressive point of view to take the picture of this Longhorn Beetle, Ivan, and you deserve congratulations for this feat.
Besides the sharpness of the picture in the ambient light, it is the expression on the face of the subject that draws one's attention. You are right in comparing it with the human expression.
Thanks and regards.

The saffron background is really attractive that offers a special contrast.
