bonjour ridvan
je pense pouvoir vous aider pour l'indentificationregardez ici .
bonne photo.

Red bull or 'red rag to the bull', Ridvan :-)?
An interesting species of Beetle with a fascinating red 'coat'.
You have composed the shot very well from the top perspective.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Ridvan,

I like the positioning of the bug traveling down the leaf. The red coat is amazing looking. Nice colors and details. He jumps out from the green leaf.

Hello Ridvan, great picture! Wonderful colors and composition, you had a perfect POV, great macro and BG.. Congratulations!

Creo que es Pyrochroa coccinea. http://www.aegaweb.com/fot_map/pyrochroidae/Pyr_cocc.htm

Ridvan, yo NO soy un experto, así que mejor te asegures jejeje.

Bonita toma. Un saludos desde España.

Hello Ridvan! :)

Oh wow, your photos are so amazing! You are perfecting your style, and I just love it!

This is wonderful, absolutely love the vivid colours. Seeing his eyes and face so clearly, such a treat!

Missed you! I've been crazy busy with the kids. Trying to get back in the swing of things.

Hello Ridvan,
Amazing, amazing macro work with splendid details and colors, thanks for sharing Ridvan.

Hello Ridvan,

It's definitely not a Pyrochroa coccinea but a member of Malachiidae (I think an Anthocomus sp.)

Best regards,

Hello Ridvan,
like everyone else I'm falling for fire-red beetles. You present this Anthocomus sp. (not a Pyrochroa) very well. The transparency of the leaf enhances the beetle. I'm surprised about the f2.8. Maybe a higher ASA (up to 200 or even 400 in some cases) might have helped. Thanks for showing us!
Best regards Ridvan,

hello Ridvan !
Beautiful red insect ! I love the vivid colors on this picture. Also a beautiful composition, and an excellent sharpness - amazin details on the insect. You are a telented phoographer, and it is always a pleasure to look at your pictures. Once again, very well done !
