Very good example of insect's mimicry. I've never seen beetle imitating wasp. Looks like it is another specie after flies and moths. Great moment and pose, especially opened wings' 'protectors' looks excellent. Interesting note as always!

Great reaction to capture this wasp beetlle with the wing caps openend already, but the actual wings still on the upper body.
Wonderful to see the beetle high on his legs lifting it self for take of.
Great details, exposure, sharpness and composition.
The shadow on the stone underneath the beetle and the soft background are very beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.

Great capture of this colourful Longhorn Robb.
Well timed, with good exposure colour and detail.
I don't think we get this one here in NZ.

Fine capture of a wasp beetle about to take off. Nice and sharp, good lighting, BG and colours though a little noisy. Fine composition with the stone 'runway'.
TFS a species that I haven't seen for some years now.
Have a good week, Ivan

Excellent pose here, great timing. Pin sharp with excellent DOF and a superb POV. Nice work
Great action shot with stunning DOF and lovely BG. Very good compo too, but above all extremely interesting beetle with great note!
Only minor problem: very noisy, I tried a WS to remove the digital noise

Spectacular macro, the strength in the legs is impressive, also all the sharp details in this photo are admirable,

Great pose on this beetle, every attribute is accountable and shows wonderful detail.
With as much noon lighting that you have available in this image, you should be able to use a lower ISO setting to avoid the grainy texture. As a rule for me anyway I will avoid noise as much as possible, and only when the available ambient lighting tends to get darker it is then that I start adjusting for higher ISO settings to compensate for lower lighting.
