Before continuing I inform you that I have gained a workshop with a complementary view of this little rhino.

With this striking American rhinoceros beetle, called in Argentina bug bull; desire to celebrate my first 1000 points TrekNature.

While it will seem to many of my talented colleagues, a humble achievement, is for me a source of personal pride and great encouragement to further improve the images I want to share with all friends from TN.
Points are not trivial or frivolous to me, represent the recognition that my peers have done and do my work, my work is enthusiastic hobby mixture; scientific learning, art, critical analysis, of immense love nature and an equally immense affection for all the wonderful friends of TrekNature.

I can only say to all: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU ... That beautiful, it is our great mother, brothers and sisters, our beloved Nature!

Hello Hernan,
I was either in Brazil or Guatemala when I saw my first Rhinoceros Beetle, I was amazed at how big it was. They truly have a menacing look to them with their large rhino horn and double protruding points on their brow. I have to admit the one I saw seemed just the opposite, almost timid.
A young boy and his friends brought it over for me to view, as he held it out in his hand. This was a real treat for me, as I'm always interested in strange and new insects that live in other parts of the globe.
You have done a fantastic job of photographing this particular beetle. Exceptional detail and beautiful natural colors.

hey Hernan,
i really like your portrait of this beetle - we seldom see them in nature and on TN.
Good pic with good details.

Olá colega bela foto com qualidade muito boa meus parabéns por esta imagem atraente.

I have to congratulate you for your 1000 points:-)! This is a striking beetle with its big "horn" which you have caught in a very natural manner. Interesting note too.
