Hello Manee,
What a strange and interesting insect!
no idea about ID, but looks great, has a beautiful color
very good composition and DOF

Hello Manee,

A bodybuilder in the insects world. POV, lighting and focus are perfect. No idea about the ID. What is the size of this insect?
Have a nice day, cheers,

Wow, what a strange looking bug, Manee!
Looks like a stuffed toy to me with bluish-green cloth for the skin.
Is it really real?
Very impressive capture.

Ciao Manee,
una foto veramente particolare!
Il coleottero è veramente strano, sembra un giocattolo meccanico!
La cosa che mi piace di più è la sensazione di tridimensionalità di questa immagine, così nitida.

Very interesting bug... Great details and nice backdrop.


Hello Manee,
Very good DOF; overall sharp.
Extraordinary bug; looks a bit it is made out of bluish leather.
Well done

Hi Manee

Amazing insect, don't think I've seen anything like that before.

Well captured with good sharpness and composition.

Looks like an armoured beetle from a SciFi movie.
