Missed being your neighbour on the gallery by one space, Ivan.
It is decidedly a rare Beetle and I have definitely seen it for the first time. Unique but absolutely attractive colours on its thorax and abdomen. The POV from the top shows all its features very clearly.
Thanks for sharing this suberb macro of a rare species of Beetles.

Ciao Ivan. Bit focus problems but very good colours and contrast. Wondeful light throught the flower to obtain so intrigant graphic effects.

This is so beautiful it actually looks unreal in a way, almost like make believe. A most colourful and striking macro with which I cannot find any fault. The details captured are superb, the composition and point of view just right and the additionals like the pretty petite flowers and the water droplets that covers the beetle a pleasant bonus. The shape of the antennas is fascinating and pleasant to look at. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

What a strange beetle. Looks if he wears a coat. Excellent sharpness, details and beautiful natural colours. Nice contrasting BG with these flowers. Great composition.

Sort of like aphids on dill eh? That's where I find them up here....times elsewhere, where the ants are:-)
Besides being a good photographer, as shown here, you are like a walking talking, living Audubon. did you know that Audubon shot his birds dead before he drew their images. True story..

Hej Dostum Ivan,
This capture couldn't be better, very elegant beetle indeed.
Fantastic composition with this one, the sharpness seems impeccable too.
The shallow DOF was a good choice too MF!
TFSW and have a nice night!

günaydın Ivan dostum
this is very interesting, bt very beautiful beetle, with reddish and dark green colors. In first looking, I thought it was a Lampyridae. May be I have seen a Silphidae member for first time. you greatly captured it on flowery umbelliferous. great focus, light using and POV/DOF. nicely composed and presented with good informative notes.
çok teşekkürler dostum. eline sağlık. iyi günler.

I love the velvety texture and bronze colour on this beetle.
You're right, it does create something of an illusin of fuzziness.
Lovely composition on this wild carrot like plant.
TFS this rare image,

Bonne idée de montrer une espèce peu vue sur ce site. Une petite créature que j'ai vue aussi quelques fois. Pas vraiment belle, mais intéressant de la voir en agrandi! Très bonne netteté et de fines couleurs naturelles.
Merci aussi de ta note explicative.

Vaya otro insecto que no había visto, preciosa composición, parece que este insecto flota por encima de estas pequeñas flores. Un POV excelente y buenos colores.
Un saludo de Antonio

Qué sorpresa Ivan ! No vemos cada día a este curioso escarabajo.
Veo que sus texturas y dibujos son sumamente elegantes a la vez
que difíciles de captar por la cámara; no es el caso ya que tú
lo captaste con gran habilidad. Bellas tonalidades y excelente la
sensación del insecto "flotando" sobre la planta.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.
