Hola Juan

it's a wasp-mimicking longicorn beetle of the genus Mecometopus, the species is very close to M. leprieuri from French Guyana

hasta luego


Very sharp macro of this interesting beetle, Juan.
The POV from the top gives all the details on the bug in perfect clarity.
Well done and TFS.

Hola Juan,

Nice picture with nice natural color. Even if the pov is very good, I think you should rotate the image 180 degree in order to have looking upward. Nice details ! TFS,
