Robert, your picture is so detailed it gave me the creepy crawlies! Must be those little hairs on its belly and legs. Great color, light, framing, etc. Penny

Witaj Robert
Fajne zdjęcie dość rzadkiego chrząszcza. Bardzo dobra ostrość i wyraźne detale. Również kolory ładne. Trochę mi przeszkadza odblask lampy błyskowej, ale ogólnie jest OK

Hi Robert again.
Excellent close-up of splendid specimen. Fill flash is great. Colours are amazing as well as the details of the insect. Well done and best wishes.

Hi Robert, A good clear very shrp macro of this wild-looking beetle. Looks like one of the easier species to remember the name of with the large horn! Good presentation. TFS. Murray.
