thanks for this post.
I have seen this bug several times this springtime and I always asked myself what bug this could be. So I'm interested to hear from the others if your ID is right.
You captured it very good and in a nice pose with a pretty blurred BG.
Thanks, have a nice day

Nice macro shot of this beetle.
The detail on the head is very good but further down the body it does seem to get a bit soft.
Good vertical framing and a nice OOF background.
Good capture and TFS

Whatever the scientific name, it should be known colloquially as the brown pole-sitting beetle. Good details against the BG. Maybe could have been a bit brighter in post-processing? Thanks.

A wonderful photo of this beetle. Very good quality, as usual. Great sharpness, DOF and natural colours against a nice OOF BG. Good composition.

a very good macro shot, outstanding sharpness, excellent POV with a great visual impression, splendid colours and BG.
Very nice capture of beetle, but not bean beetle or even not a member of Bruchidae family. This is a species of Elateridae, unfortunatelly as for now I can not help you with species ID (maybe tomorrow at work :>).
All the best,

These are not easy to photograph but you did very well with the antennae sharply in focus. A nice contrasting background and well composed. I think I've seen the same species here but I've not managed to capture it.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

A nice macro of a Click Beetle that I think is Lacon murinus. This POV shows most of its features against a nice diffuse green BG in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and kind regards,

Nice to see your macro shots. Very attractive scene, excellent sharpness and details of the cute insect. I also like wonderful smooth and colourful BG. Natural lighting is used perfectly. Do you like your camera as equipment for macro shooting? My warm greetings and TFS.
